If you need to get caught up on the scandal that has engulfed Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick -- which is complete with sultry text messages, an adulterous affair with his chief of staff, Christine Beatty, and fibs under oath -- the Washington Post was a great overview. This was my favorite part:
Detroit television station WXYZ reported that, the weekend before the story broke, the mayor went to Asheville, N.C., to deliver an inspirational Martin Luther King Day address to a local civic organization. Neither Kilpatrick's wife nor Beatty have said that they went -- but hotel staff told the television station that the mayor and his "girlfriend" enjoyed a two-hour couple's massage, complete with an "aromatic bubble bath," champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. The mayor's massage tab: $504. The TV station said the woman gave her name as "Carmen Slowski," an apparent reference to the name of a talking turtle in Comcast cable ads.
