Ain’t so hot for the gander.
Friday was Christine Beatty’s last day as Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s chief of staff.
She resigned following the furor kicked up in the so-called text message scandal.
Beatty had an affair with hizzoner and they both lied about it in court. Now they’re being investigated for perjury.
Beatty is out. No severance pay. No pension, according to the Detroit Free Press.
The mayor says Beatty did the right thing by bowing out.
“But clearly we’ve both made mistakes,” Kwame said. “And what she did was the right thing to do, and I’m hopeful that she has an incredible life after that. I think she has a lot to give to humanity, and I wish her well.”
“What she did was the right thing to do.”
If taking a powder was the right thing for Christine Beatty to do, why wouldn’t it be the right thing for Kwame to do? After all, they were equal partners in their love affair, and they both lied in court.
Guess he’s the mayor. He can do what he wants.
But tell me, why does the woman always get the shaft in these affairs?
Oh, I forgot: Kwame got his assignment from God.
So he says.
Beatty’s big mistake?
Getting a job from Kwame.
