Disgraced former mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick, got 28 years in Federal prison for steering public contracts to his associates.

Donald Trump is doing this with #Doral right now.
"At the heart of the conspiracy was a scheme to use the power and authority of Kwame Kilpatrick's office as mayor of Detroit ...to rig the awarding of public contracts to ensure that Ferguson obtained a portion of the revenue from those contracts."
"Further evidence showed that during Kwame Kilpatrick's tenure as mayor, he solicited and accepted payments and property valued at over $1 million from persons seeking business with the city or its General Retirement System or police and fire pension funds."

@BarbMcQuade Kwame got 28 years in prison for accepting profits from people interested in doing business with the city of Detroit while he was Mayor.

#Doral #G7Summit #Corruption #DoubleStandards
@BarbMcQuade Every member State of the #G7Doral Summit has a law against participating in foreign corrupt practices. None of them can attend without breaking their own laws.
@BarbMcQuade If a journalist found out @BarackObama got a $1,000 kickback for steering the #G72020 to a @DoubleTree he would be impeached and go to jail. Donald stands to make $millions off of US spending alone.

Am I making sense?
@BarbMcQuade @BarackObama @DoubleTree Let's say this #G7Doral doesn't even happen...
He is already guilty on-tape of criminal conspiracy.

Open and shut. A black Detroit Mayor would be in handcuffs by monday.
This man gets to sit in federal prison and watch Trump break the law more than he did and just order the cops to stop talking about it.
Kwame also tried to restrain his Justice department.
This is Angela Avila-Morrero, she's a Puerto Rican official that just got busted for steering public contacts to politically connected contractors.

She isn't even accused of personal enrichment. Donald Trump is blatantly steering to #G7Doral for profit to his Son slash CEO.
Chicago's disgraced former PA director, Eugene Mullins, was sentenced to 51 months in prison for steering a $25,000 contact to a pal that returned a portion of the payment to Mullins. #G7Doral will give public money to Jr and Donald will directly profit.

51 months...
Even if you believe Trump Co.'s bullshit, the "German Chancellor's Suite at Trump Doral™" will be on the menu after Donald awarded himself a massive public contract.

He is using our money to make his businesses more appealing. There is no ambiguity.
