Detroit City Council Can’t Oust Mayor Kilpatrick

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick should buy a lottery ticket because he continues to escape being booted from office in spite of the City Council's vigorous attempts. Yesterday, a judge ruled that it was not within the authority of the Council to remove Kilpatrick from office. Didn't someone know that before the drama? No, wait, it's Detroit --- another judge will overrule the previous judge any day now.

Barring that, another option left for those who want to see Mayor Kilpatrick ousted is the hearing conducted by Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm in early September. Until then, the saga continues.
