Walter Hart, a convicted pimp and dead-beat dad, is running for city council. A man who spent seven years in a federal prison is running on a 'second chance' platform.
Detroit does produce some quality politicians.

Well, he's seen how well Marion Barry has done so he figures he has a shot.

Detroit voters are ready to clean the house up, as far as city council goes. Monica Conyers' conviction, along with the indictment of one of her aides and possible indictments of other city council members has the voters looking more closely than usual at the candidates. My guess is that people with familiar names will get elected-a popular former judge's namesake son is running, for example, and I think he'll win because of the name recognition. Ken Cockrel, Jr (aka "Shrek") and his stepmother may get re-elected because they were not indicted and their ethics are not in question.
With a businessman now serving as mayor, it would be good to have some more people from the business world on city council, instead of the usual lawyers and social workers.
