Yesterday, former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced for 28 years in federal prison. WDET's Senior News Editor Quinn Klinefelter joins Craig in-studio to share some cuts from U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds spent 25 minutes explaining not just what Kilpatrick did wrong — a long list that included taking bribes, steering contracts to his friend, extorting businessmen, deceiving donors to his nonprofit, living lavishly on the public’s dime and loading the city’s payroll with friends and family.
