Kwame Kilpatrick

Disgraced Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's political downfall was triggered in 2008 after the discovery of thousands of text messages revealed his sexual relationship with his then-Chief of Staff Christine Beatty, as well as an improper use of the city's funds. The scandal led to his resignation in 2008 and jail time after he was convicted on obstruction charges.
