A jury found former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick guilty of numerous crimes:

Jurors convicted Kilpatrick of a raft of crimes, including a racketeering conspiracy charge. He was portrayed during a five-month trial as an unscrupulous politician who took bribes, rigged contracts and lived far beyond his means while in office until fall 2008.

Prosecutors said Kilpatrick ran a “private profit machine” out of Detroit’s City Hall. The government presented evidence to show he got a share of the spoils after ensuring that Bobby Ferguson’s excavating company was awarded millions in work from the water department.

Notwithstanding the jury’s verdict, many Twitter users still think Kilpatrick is an innocent man:

Some acknowledge Kilpatrick is guilty, but insist he conducted himself no differently than most other politicians:

    All of these nuts who claim he’s innocent have no idea that he got rich off of THEIR money…assuming they paid taxes, that is…

    • jleonard14

      There’s your problem. “They” generally don’t pay taxes.

    Detroit = Savage

  • roccolore

    I guess Democrats can’t explain why none of their own are in jail for tax evasion, especially Rangel and Geithner.

    These brain free idiots are the double first cousins of all the precious DC residents who believed Barry’s “B*tch set me up” whine. Whether she did or not if he wasn’t a moron smoking crack in a motel room being filmed…well, I suppose since he was mayor Crack City…

    Anyone connected with Kwame will be politically tainted for the rest of their natural lives and deservedly so.

    Would love to see the poll on how many of the twitter accounts that are praising “Gangsta Boi Kwame” are hooked into Obamaphones.

    I’m from the Detroit area, and these are the same idiots who are on the local news NIGHTLY whining about no police/firemen/garbage collection/blah blah blah. Get a clue Kwame Klub, where do you think the $$ that should be paying for all those services went? It sure wasn’t us whiteys from the burbs stealing it from you.

    If Obama had a son, he would be Kwame Kilpatrick.

    “Kwame Aint Did Shit That Them White Ppl Aint Been Doing. He Just Got Caught!”

    The attitude of black liberals…government is crooked, white people been doin’ it for years, now it’s our turn. Cf Maxine Waters.It is refreshing to see the truth every once in a while.

    I hope they get some of the contractors who were on the other side of his crooked deals. Extortion? Hmmm. Didn’t know he was a union man.

    I’m really tired of these people. They don’t even believe what they are saying. Do they realize how idiotic they sound to reasonable people?
