Ex Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, in custody over the weekend

DETROIT (AP) — Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was locked up for the weekend Friday for violating parole in a 2008 criminal case that bounced him from office.

Kilpatrick was not arrested but arrived on his own after another day at the federal courthouse, where he’s on trial for alleged corruption in a completely separate matter.

The Michigan Department of Corrections said Kilpatrick committed 14 violations related to his failure to report certain financial transactions last fall, especially money transfers to his wife, Carlita. He still owes Detroit $855,000 in restitution and is required to report gifts and other income as a condition of his parole.

Kilpatrick agreed to waive the formal process for parole violations and instead serve three days at a Detroit lockup as punishment, Corrections Department spokesman Russ Marlan said.

He’s being housed at a former prison that is used by the state to keep parole violators in short-term custody. The dinner menu Friday was baked fish or a bean patty.

Officials earlier this month told Kilpatrick to give up the names of people who wired him $4,000 that he had failed to disclose. He was fitted with an electronic tether at the time for not disclosing money sent in December from a Chicago pastor. Officials have expressed concern that Kilpatrick is hiding assets that could be applied toward the restitution he owes.

    The stench that emanates from the political bowels in Chicago can be smelled even here in Florida.

    Rotten, rotten fish. Rotten to the core.

    Lucifer has a short list of scumbags he’s not looking forward to finding at the Gates. Slimy Kilpatrick is among those, that include Mumia, Charles Manson, and some place called Sandusky. Ohio?
