Detroit mayor sees support diminishing

The Washington Times
The walls continue to crumble for embattled Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who is under increasing pressure to resign over his role in a police whistleblower settlement scandal that many say is paralyzing the already struggling city.

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, a Republican, was the latest high-profile critic to call for Mr. Kilpatrick's resignation, telling a Detroit radio station today that the mayor, a Democrat, is a liar who lost the public trust in using the race card at a Tuesday night State of the City speech.

"It was race-baiting on par with David Duke and George Wallace — all to save his political career," Mr. Cox said in an interview on talk-radio station WJR–AM.
