It seems that Hendrix lied over and over again in his quest to become mayor. With more persons learning the truth even his former campaign supporters are disgusted by his actions. Folks have forgotten who he is and don't want others to remember how violently they supported him during the campaign.

Such is the nature of politics. Hendrix was a dirty man who practiced dirty politics in his corruption. Now its coming back to haunt him. Perhaps if he hadn't try to be mayor he could have continued under cover indefinately.



quote:

As failed mayoral candidate Freman Hendrix considers stopping the costly recount he ignited forcing cash-strapped Detroit to ante up over $200,000 his personal financial difficulties of an equal amount are catching up with him.




It seems that Hendrix does not have any money after all. That explains his using campaign money for personal use.

Brian, I don't know which one of you is the truly demented individual, you or Bankole Thompson. To spend this much time trying to prove a candidate running for mayor, a candidate who lost, is crooked is sick. The fact that you have to spend money to run a campaign and probably have to take out loans to pay for some things does not make Freman Hendrix a criminal.

So he's having problems paying back some people. You mean to tell me, Brian, you don't owe a bank for a mortgage or a car loan. If you spent money running a campaign, while not having a job, would you be able to pay everybody you owe so quickly?

Brian, you and Bankole Thompson must have really got screwed by Hendrix in the past for you and him to continue with this witch hunt. The election is over and your candidate has won. The $200,000 spent on the recount because of Hendrix is only the salary of two of a dozen Kilpatrick appointees that he hired since last January. Don't crucify Hendrix for wasting taxpayer's dollars. Mayor Kilpatrick, your candidate, Brian, does it all the time.

But, Royce, it's okay if Kwame is crooked and hands out no-bid contracts to his criminal friends and campaign supporters and wastes taxpayer money on his own megalomaniacal excesses and hires relatives for a "nonprofit" that pays $100K salaries, etc. etc. etc., because he's "our" mayor.

Brian, funny how you had to resort to refering to Hendrix as "this man" in the title of your thread (in order to get some attention). Once again, more dishonesty on your part.

By the way, could you please name some of these alleged "former campaign supporters that are disgusted by his actions"?

Also you "forgot" to mention that the recount figures are now around $160,000. What happend to Kilpatrick's first figure of $600k? Or his second figure of $500k?

Hendrix made statments during the campaign that have been proven to be untrue.

Hendrix caused alot of problems in his campaign. Further, his supporters have been attacking anyone who won't support Hendrix. This has continued beyond the election. But as usual, die hard Hendrix supporters that are left deny their actions and hope the bad press will go away.

Its interesting how all the things alleged by the papers and Hendrix about KK have never been proven to be illegal and many have been shown to be false.

Where is the manoogian mansion party investigation that Hendrix claimed to have proof? He even had his people falsify information provided to the DPD and the State Police. Hendrix supporters committed crimes when they filed false police reports. (Or did they really report the crimes to the police that they talked about to the media?)

State Reps who supported Hendrix are now committing to Kwame and claiming they never truly supported Hendrix but only did so because of threats and intimidation.

No one mentioned the recount but you MD. But why not report the true cost. Include the part picked up by the State and the County in those figures. It would have all fallen on Detroit's pocketbook but Hendrix made so many false allegations of Fraud which have proven to be untrue that the state had to pay for the security of the ballots instead of the DPD securing those ballots.

MD, you found the thread and made your comments. Should folks be refering to Hendrix as a Bitch, a Punk or a Girl instead of a Man?

Brian, state reps only supported Hendrix because Hendrix threatened and intimidated them? Right. Brian, how deep up your ass did you have to reach to pull out this shit? Damn, Brian, you are one F'ed up dude.

Brian,

Do you ever contribute facts? What Congressman has said that the only reason he supported "Helmut" was because he was scared and intimidated?? The only thing remotely close to this is the Reps and Congressman who have said, "OK, our guy didnt win, but we need to move detroit forward and will work with whoever is mayor."


What DPD documents did Hendrix's staff "falsify"

Forget to take your meds again??

Shut up, the only one talking about the election now is YOU.

Hendrix said, on national TV, that he had personal knowledge of fraud in the election. But apparently no one could find any fraud.

Hendrix said, and filed a police report, that KK's folks paid people to vote for KK. After the investigation it was found to be false statements. Pitty the media didn't report how the person making the report was a Hendrix campaign worker.

Hendrix supporters, including the Southfield police chief who is now fighting for his job, claimed they had proof of the manoogian mansion party. But no proof has surfaced and it seems it was a nasty political rumor from the beginning.

How legit is this detropolis site anyway?

I'm not doubting it but just because someone posts a link to it doesn't exactly make it a true legitimate journalistic source. That being said I sure don't want to open up that can of worms where we start debating the leanings of media. It's just that I've never heard of this site or anything from it.

Smogboy, "Detropolis" are in the same bush league as "The Michigan Citizen", "Detroit Drums", etc.

"But apparently no one could find any fraud. "

Tell that one to the Feds Brian. The investigation continues...

Also, the City and the candidates paid the tab on the recount, not the county nor state. Nice try.

By the way, how do you "explain" Lt. Bowman's victory in court and settlement? The first of several lawsuits to reach a verdict in favor of the plaintiff...

Brian: you wrote:

Hendrix supporters committed crimes when they filed false police reports. (Or did they really report the crimes to the police that they talked about to the media?)

Please cite the speech or meeting in which Mr. Hendrix ever said such things.Please provide any media or private mention of the "police reports" you reference. This is a blatant lie. You are alledging that, as opposed to the rumors of mere partisan voters, very specifically and as a campaign tactic the Hendrix campaign created a conspiracy of perjury and witness fraud. Please provide your proof.

As you will have none, not the slightest shred, please refrain from these wild accusations that make you look very bad.

Wow Brian, you are really getting beaten up on this thread.

Yes the election is over, but I think Brian's whole purpose of this thread is to just shine some light on what some forumers have been saying all along.

During the campaign, Hendrix supporters were very defensive, and ugly when it came to Hendrix. It became very nasty. Every time someone said something about Hendrix, everyone yelled lies, lies, lies.

I think Brian is just attempting to validate some things that have been said all along.

The election is over, there is no longer a need to be so defensive. Take it for what it is, learn from it, and move on.

Still playing this game huh Bratt...one liar comes to the "defense" of another (only further sinking the slightest shread of credibility either one had left)

The election is over, there is no longer a need to pretend to be "impartial", as you previously claimed. Take it for what it is, be honest for a change, and move on.

Bratt, the same could be said for KK supporters. Both played the asshole card.
