SEC Files Lawsuit Against Former Detroit Mayor Kilpatrick; WashPost Omits Party Affiliation

Ah, Kwame Kilpatrick, where've you been? The corrupt, perjurious ex-Democratic mayor of Detroit -- infamous for sending steamy text messages on a government-issued device to his chief of staff -- is in legal trouble once again, this time with the federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to the Washington Post's David Hilzenrath, the SEC has "filed civil charges accusing Kilpatrick and others of committing fraud against the [city's] pension funds by failing to disclose a conflict of interest." But, what do you know, Hilzenrath couldn't find any space in his 15-paragraph page A15 story to disclose Kilpatrick's Democratic Party affiliation.
