In a blow to Mayor Kwame M. Kilpatrick’s tenuous grip on his job here, Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm of Michigan said Tuesday that she would hold proceedings next week that could result in Mr. Kilpatrick’s removal.
The mayor, who stands accused of 10 felony counts in two separate criminal cases, will have to defend himself before Ms. Granholm, who under state law is authorized to convene the proceedings.
The Detroit City Council, which has no authority to remove Mr. Kilpatrick from office, had asked Ms. Granholm to take up the matter after having urged the mayor to resign.
Comment: You can't begin to fix Detroit until this crook goes!
