Radio ads support Detroit mayor
A radio ad supporting embattled Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is running on stations in the city.

Adolph Mongo, who was responsible for a controversial ad in 2005 that suggested Kilpatrick's critics were involved in a lynching, told The Detroit News that the goal is to suggest the mayor is innocent and put pressure on Wayne County District Attorney Kym Worthy to offer a plea bargain.

"Stop the chaos and bring this to an end," Mongo said. "Stop the lynching and dragging him all over the state."

On Tuesday, Kilpatrick won a small legal victory, the Detroit Free Press reported. A state appeals court upheld a judge who relaxed the conditions of Kilpatrick's bail, ruling that he does not need to be electronically monitored and can attend the Democratic Convention in Denver.
