Kwame Kilpatrick's Mistress Sentenced

After she was sentenced to 120 days in jail and five years of probation, Christine Beatty politely thanked her family, friends, sorors and church members. What? You're going to jail, Christine! This ain't the Academy Awards!


"Under the general heading of, 'the light skin and the long hair will get you in trouble every single time', former Chief of Staff to former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced this week to five years probation with the first 120 days served in jail for her role in the scandal that brought down Kilpatrick's administration. Christine Beatty thanked ' mother, my family, my church family, my friends, my sorors, and my colleagues...' That's truly a De-Troit apology--because there's a lot of folks who have never heard a political figure shout out their 'church family' and 'sorors' at a courthouse farewell. The Buzz has heard of keeping it in the fam, but the next mayor may want to rethink that approach. Anytime someone is listed as 'then husband's cousin's wife,' it's not a good look."
