    An Embarrassment and the Colleagues Who Enabled Him

    The good news is that most Detroit Board of Education members have ignored school board president Otis Mathis’ ill-considered attempt to retract the resignation he submitted last week after Detroit Public Schools Superintendent Teresa Gueyser outed him for masturbating in school business meetings. Mathis has no future in public service. If he even dimly appreciated his predicament, he’d be decamping to a remote foreign country instead of trying to get his office back.

    The bad news is that the board majority that elected Mathis president earlier this year is still in place, and at least one of their number, the Reverend David Murray, has dismissed Mathis’ over-the-top transgressions as a function of either the ex-board president’s youth (Mathis is 55) or his naivete. (“Maybe he didn’t know,” Murray suggested Friday after Gueyser’s accusations became public, “it was offensive to her.&rdquo

    {snip}

    But every board member, including the nine who voted to elect him school board president last year, was aware that Mathis had difficulty reading and that he struggled to compose a coherent English sentence. The fact that none of Mathis’ peers regarded this as disqualifying him as the titular head of Michigan’s largest school district speaks volumes about the board’s collective judgment, or lack of it.

    Mathis’ failure to offer his resignation when his deficit became a source of national embarrassment, and the board’s reluctance to make a leadership change or to even publicly address the matter, can be viewed in hindsight as a omen of the more grotesque scandal to come.

    Kwame Kilpatrick illegally used the nonprofit Kilpatrick Civic Fund like a piggy bank to pay for crisis consultants, a Cadillac, trips -- even summer camp for his kids -- a federal grand jury said Wednesday, charging the former mayor with 19 counts of fraud and tax evasion.

    FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - He was ordered to pay a million dollars in restitution and then ordered to serve time. Now, Kwame Kilpatrick's attorney says the former mayor's prison stint should pay off his million dollar debt to the city.

    Kilpatrick should have made another restitution payment on Tuesday. Of course, he couldn't because he's sitting in prison. Now, his attorney says his client doesn't owe the city of Detroit another dime.

    "The 140,000 should be all that he has to pay in light of the fact that he has paid with his freedom not once, but twice," said Kilpatrick attorney Arnold Reed.
