Michgan: Pardon for the Mayor?

It is reported that one of Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s attorneys has asked Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) about the possibility of a pardon. In exchange, Kilpatrick would agree to testify at a September 3rd removal hearing. See story here.

UPDATE from Reuters: Gov. Jennifer Granholm said on Thursday she would not grant a pardon to Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick on perjury and other charges, reiterating that the situation needed to be resolved. Granholm, a Democrat like Kilpatrick, said on Detroit radio station WJR she received the pardon request on Wednesday night. She said Kilpatrick would not receive immunity if he testifies at a hearing set for September 3 to determine his future.
