Just when you thought you'd never have to hear about or from him again, back into the spotlight comes the former Little King of Everything. This time, with a big fat lawsuit against SkyTel, former communications provider to the good folks at Coleman A. Young.
At issue: The company released public records. To the public. On request. This act of releasing public information to the public has made plaintiff have a sad. Weep. All of you.
The whole thing seems like a very funny joke. As usual, some of the best bits of the story come courtesy of the unsinkable former United States Congresswoman Carolyn Cheeks-Kilpatrick. Mother of the complainer. Er, complainant.
Who is to blame for Kwame's downfall, we ask? Newspapers, we're told. Judges. It's all just awful. Also, you guys, someone has totally been tapping her phones for years.
"Everything that has happened from judge misconduct has slapped my son around,” Cheeks-Kilpatrick said in an interview with the psychiatrist whose diagnosis of the former Detroit mayor is the center of the case, which SkyTel is asking the court throw out, on grounds of it being dumb.
“This all got him to the place he is now," posits Cheeks-Kilpatrick. "The helplessness and slavery that he feels is because of this.”
Oh, C-Town. You crazy.
