An update on the public corruption trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, his dad, his friend Bobby Ferguson, and former Detroit Water and Sewerage director Victor Mercado.
When Kwame Kilpatrick needed money, wealthy homeless shelter operator Jon Rutherford always delivered. Rutherford told jurors in the ex-mayor's public corruption trial Thursday that he helped bankroll Kilpatrick's political campaign, his lifestyle and his father's $10,000-a-month salary to the tune of more than $440,000 over a two-year period.
