Lets play catch up today, but make sure you got your fly swatter and your tissue, cause we guarantee you at least one laugh, even though NONE of This Is Supposed To Be Funny.
Just so you know we ain’t kiddin today, we’re starting this out with the Shrek Incident – uh huhhhh.. YEAHHHHHH You Heard Her, She Called Him Shrek. Now He’s the Mayor.
Lets start with KKfrom the WCJVIP – Yeah that’s Kwame Kilpatrick from the Wayne County Jail Very Ignorant People section. that’s where his former honor has been restin a bit. looks like he’s getting a break, and in the process helping to clear the air in the stank for a minute. no doubt, he’ll be back here to testify in both the Synagro and Strawberry trials.
in the second story he gets a break because someone called his wifes’ cellphone and said “I’m Gonna Fuck You Up and Yo Bitch Too“.
it was all over Detroit radio that this is the reason his wife has not been coming to visit him since he has been in WCJVIP; begining in October 08‘. seems like they are finally hearing from some of those folks who were having a problem getting their attention. According to Detroit talk radio show hosts, it sounds like a call from any of the thousands of folks that the Kilpatricks’ crossed and crossed out in their time running the D into the ground.

DETROIT – Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick will be allowed to leave the state next week to interview for a job. Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner on Wednesday approved Kilpatrick’s request to travel outside Michigan following his release Tuesday from jail.
Kilpatrick has 24 hours after his release to report to probation officials. Attorney James Thomas says his client’s interview is Feb. 4. Kilpatrick must return to Michigan by Feb. 9. Where Kilpatrick would be going and where his family has relocated was not revealed in open court. However, Thomas did mention Texas.
Kilpatrick will be on probation for five years. He lied during a whistle-blowers’ trial about a romantic relationship with his ex-top aide and his role in a police official’s firing.

DETROIT — An attorney for former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick told a judge Tuesday that Kilpatrick and his family have received death threats.
The attorney, James Thomas, asked Wayne Circuit Court Judge David Groner to allow Kilpatrick to travel to Texas for a job interview upon release from jail next Tuesday, but asked that details of the trip be kept a secret.
“I’m very concerned about leaks,” Thomas said. “I’m very concerned about the safety of his children and his wife.”
He said the threats were reported to Detroit police.
Kilpatrick is scheduled for a job interview on Feb. 4 with “board action” expected the next day, Thomas said.
The former mayor would return to Detroit on Feb. 9, he said.
Groner said he would not allow Kilpatrick to travel join his family, but would allow him to travel for a job interview.
Prosecutors asked that Kilpatrick turn over his passport before any trip out of state.
Then There’s The Stank from City Hall – Synagro, Buh Bye Monica.. Good Riddance to ya foul mouth and non professional demeanor.. Ya Bobblehead,
SYNAGRO SLUDGE DEAL
Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his father, Bernard Kilpatrick, and City Council President Monica Conyers are the major figures cited in a sludge-hauling executive’s account of greed and bribery in the Synagro scandal, sources confirmed Tuesday to the Free Press. The three have not been charged with wrongdoing in the case.
Their names — and others — emerged with additional details about the government’s investigation into city corruption.
The Free Press has learned that James Rosendall, the former Synagro Technologies vice president who pleaded guilty to bribery Monday, has been questioned about his contacts with other executives at Houston-based Synagro.
FBI agents recorded one Synagro official on a phone call with Rosendall discussing Rosendall’s efforts to win the $1.2-billion contract in Detroit, one source said, adding that executive has since been suspended by Synagro.
Rosendall, 44, of Grand Rapids is the government’s star witness in the Synagro probe and has provided the FBI with little, if any, direct evidence that cash was funneled to Kwame Kilpatrick, according to sources familiar with the case.
One source also said that Kilpatrick’s jailed former chief of staff and lover, Christine Beatty, does not appear to be a target of the Synagro probe.
Other figures named
In addition to the Kilpatricks and Monica Conyers, the Free Press has identified five other people who were cited — but not named — in Rosendall’s plea records Monday.
Sources identified those five as onetime mayoral aides Michael Tardif and Derrick Miller; Detroit developer and Synagro consultant Rayford Jackson; Akunna Olumba, a business associate and former girlfriend of Bernard Kilpatrick, and former Conyers aide Sam Riddle.
They all declined to comment or could not be reached Tuesday, though Riddle just told WXYZ-Channel 7 he did not funnel Synagro money to Conyers, as the plea agreement alleges. “I was not that intermediary and I did not have that conversation with Rosendall,” Riddle told reporter Steve Wilson. Referring to today’s Free Press report, Riddle called the newspaper’s headline “misleading.”
Acting U.S. Attorney Terrence Berg wouldn’t confirm any identities Tuesday, repeating his view that it’s improper to link people to possible crimes if they have not been charged.
“You shouldn’t accuse people until you’re prepared to go into court and back it up,” Berg said.
A lawyer for Kwame Kilpatrick declined to comment Tuesday.
Bernard Kilpatrick, who runs a Detroit consulting firm, “absolutely” denied he was the Relative A to City Official A cited in Rosendall’s plea deal.
“That was a blatant lie,” he said of the plea document, which contends that Rosendall paid him $25,000 to help win the 2007 Synagro contract.
Conyers wouldn’t discuss Rosendall’s plea deal.
“Why don’t you ask the other people?” she told a reporter after a meeting Tuesday. She previously has said she has nothing to fear from the federal investigation, which also extends to other city contracts and business deals.
Time is running out
The identities of the eight individuals emerged Tuesday as legal experts debated why federal prosecutors described the eight with names such as City Official A, Relative A and City Council Member A.
Most experts interviewed Tuesday said Rosendall’s highly detailed 18-page plea agreement sends a clear message that time is running out for anyone who participated in the conspiracy but who so far has refused to cooperate.
“The window of opportunity to cooperate with the government will only be open for a short time, and whoever comes in first will get the best deal,” said Detroit criminal lawyer David Griem.
In a related development, a Synagro spokesperson confirmed that Rosendall was fired Tuesday from his job as the company’s Michigan vice president. He had been suspended since last summer when the scandal broke.
Rosendall pleaded guilty Monday to a single count of bribery conspiracy, a deal that will likely require him to spend 11 months in prison and pay a fine up to $250,000.
After the FBI confronted Rosendall with evidence early last year, he cooperated with its investigation by helping agents record conversations and alleged payoffs with city employees and others.
Cooley Law School professor Alan Gershel, former head of the U.S. Attorney’s Criminal division, said he was surprised by the amount of information contained in the documents released Monday in connection with Rosendall’s plea, saying they usually don’t have as much detail.
Mayer Morganroth, the lawyer who represented Beatty in the text message scandal, said the government’s high-profile tactics could be putting the squeeze on people who will have to decide soon between becoming witnesses or defendants.
“Maybe one of them will see the information and say, ‘I better get myself in there.’ ”

The day after a vice president for sludge hauling company Synagro Technology pleaded guilty to bribing city officials, Detroit City Council members approved a resolution asking Mayor Ken Cockrel Jr. to rescind a $1.2 billion, 25-year Synagro contract.
Council President Pro Tempore Joann Watson introduced the resolution to rescind at Tuesday’s formal session.
Several council members expressed vocal support, but some urged caution.
A representative from the city’s Law Department warned that rescinding the contract without a legally defensible cause could open the city to a breach of contract suit from Synagro.
“I would hate to see anything that could allow Synagro to bring suit against the city after all this mess,” said Councilmember Alberta Tinsley-Talabi.
And there are practical concerns: “They’re currently hauling sludge,” said Councilmember Sheila Cockrel. “We need to find an alternative way to get it off the premises.”
Investigators have alleged that the company paid bribes to obtain the contract, approved 5-4 by City Council in 2007.
James Rosendall, the Synagro vice president, pleaded guilty Monday. He confessed to illegal dealings with multiple unnamed city officials, including an unnamed council member.
Watson, who opposed the contract in 2007, said her chief concern is the issue of privatizing city services. Synagro functions, she said, could be performed by municipal workers.
For these typically BS Appearances – we hereby award you ALL – The Kilpatricks; Monica Conyers and James Rosendall with the Shut Yo Moufff.. and honestly, Y’all Need To Do It, Right Now
