DETROIT, Michigan (CNN) - Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick defiantly declared his innocence just an hour after a prosecutor charged him with perjury and other felonies.
"This has been a very flawed process from the beginning," said Kilpatrick. "I look forward to complete exoneration."
Earlier Monday, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy announced that she would charge Kilpatrick with multiple counts of perjury, obstruction of justice and misconduct in office in connection with accusations that Kilpatrick lied in court about a romantic affair and the firing of police officers.

No one says Bill Clinton did not lie
The point there was in the opinion of those who supported him
1. He deserved censure in the well of Congress
2. Had the Repubclicans agreed the man would have received his just desserts for lying to the people
3, The Republicans made it a political issue and pushed for the extreme death penalty – the impeachment of a sitting president. The only office holder voted in by all the people of this country
4. That type of removal has constitutional rules that were being violated by the Republicans
So again – two wrongs do not make a right
But there was a correct punishment for Bill Clinton and that is the courts the courts and as Presidet – a rebuke and censure
Impeachment was a reach not healthy for this nation
And the DEMS are smart not to impeach Bush or Cheney for their flat out lies and sentence commutations that exceed the evil the mayor or Bill Clinton did
People who say that "his personal life means nothing to me" should elect an armed robber to a political office and see what happens to your treasury.
Personal lives of elected leaders DO matter.
He shouldn't be looking " forward to complete exoneration," but complete incareration.
Democrat mayor Democrat mayor Democrat mayor!
why wont you just say it?
Maybe he should use Pres Clintons words! They worked for him.. Opps,... then again maybe they did not.
