Kilpatrick campaign fails to file report
BY M.L. ELRICK and ZACHARY GORCHOW FREE PRESS STAFF WRITERS March 24, 2009

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has failed to file a required campaign finance report, violating state law and raising questions about what happened to the $1.3 million he had on hand at the end of 2007.

The report is now nearly two months overdue.

Maurice Kelman, a retired Wayne State University law professor and expert on election law, said the public has a right to know how Kilpatrick used those campaign funds as he faced felony charges stemming from last year's text message scandal.

"What he has to gain by not filing is continuing to conceal how he's spent his money," Kelman said.

Kilpatrick's longtime campaign treasurer told the Free Press he resigned last year. Kilpatrick's current treasurer could not be reached.

Kilpatrick by far had the biggest campaign fund of the scores of candidates who have not filed campaign finance reports. The penalties for not filing, however, are relatively minor in Michigan.

We'll never get an explanation--unless the FBI and IRS are following the money.

I wish him many, many years in prison.

Where? In his pockets. Where else would it be?
