Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is now in some deep dookie for possibly lying under oath last year when he denied having an affair with his top aide Christine Beatty. It has come out that they sent over 14,000 text messages to one another professing their love, affair, and hot butt naked sex.
The text messages….
“I’m madly in love with you,” Kilpatrick wrote on Oct. 3, 2002.
“I hope you feel that way for a long time,” Beatty replied. “In case you haven’t noticed, I am madly in love with you, too!”
On Oct. 16, 2002, Kilpatrick wrote Beatty: “I’ve been dreaming all day about having you all to myself for 3 days. Relaxing, laughing, talking, sleeping and making love.”
Kilpatrick is married with three children. Beatty was married at the time and has two children.
The two, both 37, have been friends since they attended the same Detroit high school. Kilpatrick also appointed Beatty as his chief of staff when he became state House minority leader in 1999. She was his campaign manager during his campaigns for state House and the mayor’s office.
The content of the text messages “astounded” Judge Michael Callahan, who presided over the lawsuit. He said the messages would have been admitted into evidence, if they had been presented during the trial.
“I’ve done other whistle-blower cases, but I don’t think I’ve ever had a trial as tense as the one involving the mayor and the city,” he said.
The Mayor’s statements….
“These five- and six-year-old text messages reflect a very difficult period in my personal life,” he said. “It is profoundly embarrassing to have these extremely private messages now displayed in such a public manner.”
Dag the media just Jim Browned him.
