Former Detroit Mayor Pens Tell-All

June 4, 2011  |  

Kwame Kilpatrick’s name has been dragged through the mud…twice…ok, three times.

In case you forgot the former mayor of Detroit is currently serving time for assault of a police officer and obstruction of justice. Oh yeah…this all happened after he lied about his affair with a female staff member.

But despite all the drama, Kilpatrick hopes to put the scandal behind him and use his experiences to help others seeking political office.

Kilpatrick told the Associated Press, “I have set up a great deal of opportunities for myself, and opportunities to first make reconciliation to the city of Detroit. More than anything else, I have been given a great amount of gifts, and there are people, fortunately, who want for me to help them.”

The book, “Surrendered: The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick” will be released later this summer.
