Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is resisting calls for his resignation amid allegations that he lied under oath and conspired in a case involving an inappropriate personal relationship. Kilpatrick gave a racially charged speech this week, accusing the local media of having a "lynch mob" mentality.
The controversy, which many are calling "Textgate," has been front-page news for weeks. Both the Wayne County prosecutor and the Detroit City Council are investigating Kilpatrick's conduct.
