Secrecy edicts a sign of desperation by Detroit mayor
By David Cuillier
Embattled Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is desperate because his lies have been exposed through public records.

Just because they say something is secret doesn’t make it so. Check out the story of his edict by the Detroit Free Press, and the latest story today about the Michigan governor moving toward considering his forced removal from office.
