Detroit Mayor Pleads for Forgiveness....

Detroit Mayor Pleads for Forgiveness.....Wife should have taken a page from Hillary and blamed some right wing conspiracy for tripping and or pulling the rug from under his feet, which caused his, you know what, to penetrate his aide's you know what....

Once again, the charges he'll probably face, is LYING under oath!! for getting some side pooh nanny, not for doing the shimmy sham, shimmy hot damn with his aide!!

Remember the days, when we guys used to lie about getting some, but now if we get into some elected office and get some other lovin' from someone who ain't your wife and all of sudden we lie about gettin' some!!

Anyway here's the story...

DETROIT - (AP) Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick pleaded for forgiveness from his wife and constituents Wednesday in an emotional but carefully worded televised speech, avoiding direct mention of racy text messages that appear to contradict his sworn denials of an affair with a top aide.

"I truly apologize to you," Kilpatrick said, turning to his wife, Carlita, who sat by his side, holding his hand, at their family church.

"I am the mayor. I made the mistake," Kilpatrick told Detroit residents, looking into the camera. "I am accountable."

He did not publicly specify what he was apologizing for, saying legal matters prevented him from doing so.

A prosecutor is investigating whether the mayor and chief of staff Christine Beatty lied under oath during a whistle-blower's lawsuit last summer in which both denied having a physical relationship. A conviction of lying under oath can bring up to 15 years' imprisonment.

Kilpatrick vowed to remain mayor in the carefully orchestrated speech, which aired live in prime time on local television and radio stations. His voice cracked at least once during his apology, and he and his wife held hands at times while detailing how the events had affected their family.
