Detroit Mayor Kilpatrick Hopes to be Untethered to Attend Dem Convention
Detroit's embattled mayor, Kwame Kilpatrick, a superdelegate to the Democratic National Convention, is holding out the possibility that he'll actually be able to go to Denver this month. In other words, the Hip-Hop mayor could get a new nickname: the Most Unwanted Man at the Convention. (Besides maybe John Edwards.)

Even though he's currently wearing an electronic tether that prevents him from traveling outside the Detroit area, Kilpatrick hopes a judge will grant him permission to fulfill his superdelegate duty of nominating Barack Obama for president at his party's convention, the start of which is just a week and-a-half away.

Asked whether the mayor will be attending the Denver convention, Kilpatrick spokeswoman Denise Tolliver told the Sleuth, "We're not sure yet." She said the mayor was waiting to see what happens on Thursday, when he's scheduled to be arraigned on felony charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, and on Friday, when he's due to appear in court on separate assault charges.
