Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick

Kilpatrick recently said in a released statement. “I am beginning anew. I am looking forward. I have new dreams and aspirations. I have a new hope. My greatest desire is that my testimony will give anyone who will listen permission to dream of greatness and to push toward it even in the midst of failure.

Kilpatrick spent 14 months in prison from probation violation. on felony charges from text message scamming!

But, that’s NOT it, 

Kilpatrick still owes the city of Detroit more than $800,000 of the $1 million he promised to pay as part of his punishment for the text message scandal.
