Look out, Barack. Your old friend and pledged superdelegate, corruptocrat Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, is coming to Denver for the Democrat National Convention.
A judge in Michigan is not only allowing him to travel, but has freed Kilpatrick from his electronic tether. The judge believes it’s important for the city of Detroit for the embattled Kilpatrick to appear at the convention. Seriously:
As the Wayne County Prosecutor rushes to the the Michigan Court of Appeals trying to overturn a judge’s ruling allowing Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to attend the Democratic National Convention, the Free Press has just learned that the judge who approved the trip has imposed stricter travel restrictions on Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
Wayne County Circuit Judge Leonard Townsend earlier this morning ruled that the mayor may attend the Democratic National Convention in Denver later this month and may take off his electronic tether, but in a decision that may surprise even Kilpatrick’s attorneys, Townsend said the mayor otherwise may not leave Wayne County.
…Townsend’s unexpected move set off a furious objection by assistant Wayne County Prosecutor Lisa Lindsey.
“We’re going to strenuously object,” she said, adding that Thomas’ request broke a private deal Kilpatrick’s lawyers struck with prosecutors.
Townsend rejected all of her arguments, saying the mayor arrived in court before he did and was not a flight risk.
“He wants to be here as much as the people” want him here, Townsend said, adding that it was important to Detroit that the mayor attend the convention.
He then went further, ordering the removal of the tether the mayor has worn since Friday.
As Lindsey continued to argue, Townsend said “I think you’re losing your composure.”
