So there’s a big brouhaha in Detroit again this afternoon after a judge over-ruled another judge who had over-ruled him in deciding Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick could remove his electronic tether and attend the Democratic National Convention.
I can understand the dust-up over whether the mayor should be leaving the state or not, especially since he’s proven he can’t be trusted to adhere to court orders to stay home.
What I don’t understand is the big issue about the electronic tether. Does anyone seriously not know where the mayor is at any given moment? All they have to do is look for the line of media trucks, listen for the sound of PR experts backpedaling and sniff for the rotting corpse that once was the career of a bright, young political star.
