Ex-Mayor Says He Received Thousands Of Dollars In Unreported Wire Transfers
DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – Ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been told to give up the names of people who wired him $4,000 he failed to disclose to the state.
Corrections spokesman Russ Marlan told The Detroit News Friday that Kilpatrick didn’t tell officials about the money until Thursday – the same day he was fitted with an electronic tether for not disclosing another $2,000 sent last month from a Chicago pastor.
“This would be the third parole violation in less then a month,” said WWJ’s legal analyst Charlie Langton. “I’m surprised he’s not in prison now.”
Kilpatrick still owes Detroit $855,000 in restitution from an earlier criminal case. He is required to report gifts and other income as a condition of his parole.
Kilpatrick is on trial for public corruption in federal court in Detroit. He is confined to his mother’s home in the city and banned from traveling to Texas where his wife and three sons live.
