If the Detroit Free Press can recycle my blog stories (see joelontheroad.com “Free Press recycling plan,” Feb. 19 under “Kwamegate”), guess I can push the replay button, too.
On Feb. 8 I wondered how long it will take for Christine Beatty to crack. You know, turn on Kwame. Now that the Wayne County prosecutor has charged her with obstruction of justice, conspiracy and perjury crimes that carry some hefty prison time, if she’s convicted — I can’t help raising the question again. But wait! Why write it again? I’m a firm believer in recycling, too. So here’s that Feb. 8 post:
Wonder if Christine Beatty will flip.
You know, the Detroit mayor’s recently retired chief of staff who, according to published text messages, had an affair with hizzoner about which they both allegedly lied in court.
Will she cut a deal with the prosecutor?
In the movies, they call it “turning state’s evidence.”
In other words, snitch on hizzoner.
Wouldn’t that be, well, betrayal?
Isn’t that what this whole saga is about?
