Kilpatrick’s Release Date Pushed Back

DETROIT (WWJ) – It looks like former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will be in jail a little longer than expected.

A spokesman for the Michigan Department of Corrections tells WWJ Newsradio 950 that Kilpatrick will likely be released in early August, rather than late July.

Russ Marlan said his office is still working to finalize details with the Texas Department of Corrections, which will eventually oversee Kilpatrick’s parole.  As a condition of his parole, Kilpatrick must live in Texas.

Kilpatrick has already served more than a year behind bars. He pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice in 2008 after he lied on the stand about an affair with his then chief of staff, Christine Beatty. He ended up in prison in May 2010 after said he violated his parole by failing to honestly disclose his assets while owning the city $1 million in restitution

Meantime, Kilpatrick still faces trial in 2012 on unrelated federal corruption charges, accused of taking kickbacks and bribes in exchange for city contracts.

    Yeah, Pudge, associating yoersulf with a drooling Jesus Freak is a great way to show your some kinda talk radio authority. Of course it was because the guy was zinging Franken, your nemesis, but as has been mentioned here, none of you rightwingers can touch Franken right now because HE IS IN IRAQ PUTTING HIS LIFE IN DANGER ENTERTAINING THE TROOPS YOU SENT THERE TO DIE! The Washington Post website published in 2003 The Chickenhawk List which proved that every right wing supporter of this war was either a cowardly Vietnam draft dodger or refused to serve, while most of the Democrats speaking passionately against the war like Gephardt, Daschle, Kerry, etc. had served or were war heroes. This woke half the military up to what chickenhawk frauds you are.Right now a third of soldiers are coming home a different person with PTSD. But unlike Vietnam we’re not taking the chance that America learned it’s lesson this time, so top bloggers are soon opening “Maps to the NeoCon Chickenhawks Homes” which will be distributed to every returning Iraqi vet, so they can go directly to the homes of the NeoCon chickenhawks and their most vocal supporters to express their first and second amendment rights. Let’s here from some more of you right wing chickenhawks so we can make sure you are on the map.
