Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm Set Hearing Date For Kilpatrick Removal Talks

Not wanting to get in the middle of the tug of war struggle between Detroit City Council and Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, a war which has been raging for seven months now, Gov. Jennifer Granholm has decided to get her feet wet.

Thursday evening, a representative from the Michigan Governor’s Office announced that Gov. Granholm had indeed set a hearing date for September 3, 2008, in order to hear arguments regarding the removal of Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick from office. More than likely, Gov. Granholm was forced to reconsider her neutral stance after the jailing of Kilpatrick Thursday.

Detroit City Council asked Gov. Granholm to intervene in the process of removing Kilpatrick from his mayoral duties soon after the mayor was indicted on misconduct and perjury charges stemming from the firing of three police officers, and an alleged affair with his top aide, Christine Beatty.
