Judge Orders Seizure of Money from Former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and Wife


Judge has ordered the seizure of money from Kilpatrick and his wife

Former Detroit Mayor Kwami Kilpatrick and his wife were in the process of a crowdfunding campaign in order to buy a home in Florida. A federal judge intervened and ordered the seizure of the funds since Kilpatrick still owes more than $193,000 in restitution. Both their Plumfund and Paypal accounts were seized.
