Detroit — Imprisoned former Mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick, was indicted on federal corruption charges along with his father and three aides. Kilpatrick is charged with using the Mayor’s office as a criminal enterprise to make money for himself and his associates. The Detroit Free Press reports:

The 89-page indictment outlined four general areas of misconduct.

It said the defendants extorted money from municipal contractors, state and non-profit donors and engaged in bribery and extortion involving other public contracts and investments.

The indictment said that Ferguson kicked back at least $424,000 in cash and other items of value to the mayor and that Kilpatrick used more than $590,000 in cash derived from the conspiracy to pay his credit card bills, purchase cashier’s checks and clothing and repay loans.
