Well, At Least We Know Where Kwame Kilpatrick Won't Be Working in Dallas

As Jim noted last week, disgraced former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick is out of the joint and heading to Texas -- where, no kiddin', he has a job interview tomorrow. So reports The Detroit News today, which eliminates one potential employer from the list of would-be bosses: T.D. Jakes and The Potter's House, which Kilpatrick visited back in September. (Actually, it takes a second potential employer off the list as well: Comerica, which moved from Detroit to Dallas in 2007. Like that was gonna happen.) Says the paper, Kilpatrick ...

... has a judge's permission to travel today to an undisclosed location in Texas. The job offer also has been kept under wraps, but Kilpatrick's lawyer has said the interview will be Wednesday and a decision could come as soon as Thursday.

Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner, who issued orders modifying Kilpatrick's five year probation to allow the six-day out-of-state trip, said the job offer was the city's best chance at getting paid $1 million in restitution that was part of Kilpatrick's sentence.
