    Disgraced Detroit mayor gets 28 years for corruption

    Chicago (AFP) - Disgraced Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to 28 years in a federal prison on corruption and extortion charges.
    The sentence comes as the city of Detroit is seeking to shed massive debts he helped rack up in the nation's largest municipal bankruptcy.
    Kilpatrick, 43, was convicted in March of two dozen criminal counts following a sweeping federal investigation into the rigging of municipal and state contracts.
    Some 33 other people -- including city workers and contractors -- have also been convicted as a result of the investigation.

    Kilpatrick needs to spend the rest of his life in prison for what he did to that city.

    I'm starting to think anyone who expresses an interest in becoming a politician needs to have a full psych evaluation and potentially kept away from the general population as a precaution. I've met quite a few, and none struck me as anything more than slimy con men or opinionated blowhards.
