We saw a truckload of these kinds of advice articles during the whole Clinton/Lewinsky scandal and the Impeachment process back in the late ’90s.
Now, it’s come back to us, with Kwame “The Kingpin” Kilpatrick’s 12-Count/8-Felony Indictment. Today’s Detroit Newsistan bears the article, “How to Discuss The Mayor With Kids.” A snippet:
Take Lashaylah Lathon-Bey, for example. The 10-year-old Detroiter easily recounts the entire scandal, starting with the never-proven Manoogian Mansion party in 2002. She details alleged stories about dancers at the party, an assault that may have taken place at the party, police officers getting fired, a federal lawsuit they filed, their trial, text messages and the mayor’s criminal charges.
And while the fifth-grader may recall the timeline in great detail, she also has learned a lesson from the mayor’s legal troubles.
“If he had told the truth when this all first happened, he wouldn’t have these charges on him now, and he probably wouldn’t have to be in trouble,” she says. “Every day, we tell my little 6-year-old brother that it’s not OK to lie. The mayor is a bad influence on certain kids, kids who are still learning about things.
BTW, here are another couple of videos for the song “Party @ The Manoogian” (whoever made the second vid apparently reads this site, as he/she used the pic of Kwame “The Kingpin” that I scanned and frequently use on this site (below). The red Lincoln Navigator was a scam in which Kwame improperly tried to lease, at Detroit city expense, two red Navigators for his wife at a cost of $25,000 each, for a 2-year lease, and pretended they were “police vehicles” for undercover drug buys:
