    Rogue Democrats Loot Detroit As Nation Sleeps | Via Meadia

    Few readers will be surprised to learn that decades of incompetence and entrenched corruption in DetroitÂ’s government have not only helped wreck the city; firms linked to former Democratic mayor Kwame Kilpatrick also looted the pension fund.

    The latest scandal, which leaves even hardened observers of the abysmal Democratic machine that has run the city into the ground bemused, involves a real estate firm which gave the felonious mayor massages, golf outings, trips in chartered jets and other perks as this enemy of the people went about his hypocritical business of pretending to care about the poor while robbing them blind. The firm, apparently run by a sleazy low class crook named by the reprehensible Kilpatrick to be the Treasurer of what was left of DetroitÂ’s finances, used Detroit pension funds to buy a couple of California strip malls. Title to the properties was never transferred to the pension funds, and they seem to be out $3.1 million.

    The entire local government of Detroit needs to be replaced. The state needs to just take over the city until some sort of new competent leadership can be established.

    Whoa there, Road. Many of us in other parts of Michigan don't want any part of the slum they've turned Detroit in to. They broke it; they fix it.

    Oh, and good luck with the fix. Just one of the many many hurdles they'll have to clear in order to do it is firing lots of people from the bloated city government payrolls. That should give the management and rank and file stooges something to chat about with the boys downtown. That they could sell on Pay-Per-View to generate some revenue for them to figure out how to steal.
