Unfortunately I believe that we are limited in what we can focus on. I think that if we proceed with the partisan sideshow of prosecuting Bush admin. officials, healthcare will get lost in the brouhaha.

Detroit Mayor Indicted

POSTED: 12:44 PM ET, 03/24/2008 by The Editors

Two months after the Detroit Free Press published highlights from sexually explicit text messages between Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and a top aide, the mayor was indicted today on charges of perjury, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office.

Both Kilpatrick and the aide, then Chief of Staff Christine Beatty, had denied in court that they had a romantic relationship. But the Free Press reviewed nearly 14,000 text messages received and sent from Beatty's city-issued pager in 2002 and 2003 and published excerpts that contradicted their testimony.

The newspaper hasn't explained exactly how it obtained the text messages, as we discussed in this earlier post in our investigative blog.
