Aide Says Kwame Kilpatrick took a bribe in bathroom

DETROIT (AP) — A former aide to Kwame Kilpatrick ended the first leg of his testimony Thursday by saying he delivered a $10,000 bribe to the then-Detroit mayor in a restaurant bathroom.

The testimony came the same day that Michigan prison officials ordered Kilpatrick to wear an electronic tether and live with his mother while they investigate whether he violated parole by failing to report a $2,000 cash gift from a Chicago minister.

Derrick Miller said Thursday the money came from developers and was solicited by Kilpatrick. Prosecutors have now turned Miller over to defense attorneys for cross-examination.

Kilpatrick, his father Bernard and pal Bobby Ferguson are charged with rigging contracts and taking payoffs. Miller was a defendant, too, until pleading guilty to corruption in 2011.

    Well, the politicians have let D.C. become one big sh!thole so this is very applicable. Except for the White House, it’s more of a ‘Frisco bathhouse.

    What is a Kwami? That a rimjob, a dirty teabag, a cornhole reach around?

    He paid 10k for a Kwami, it must be something freakishly filthy dirty.
