DETROIT — Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, who was caught in an infidelity scandal, tells his side of the story in his new book, “Surrendered: The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Malik Kilpatrick.”

Kilpatrick, who was the youngest mayor elected to office, seeks to set the record straight about many accusations made against him by public figures and prosecutors who, he feels, focused on stories other than the one transgression he apologetically admits to: his affair.

Black Voice News Reports:

In his book, Kilpatrick, recounts not only what many remember in sound bites, but gives context to the buzzwords — sext messaging, pay-to-play, Navigator, Manoogian party — used in the now infamous media takedown.

Kilpatrick successfully makes himself the subject — not the object — of his story by giving personalized accounts of his relationship and history with his chief of staff and friend Christine Beatty; his relationship with his administrative team and the metro Detroit business community, contractors, his constituency and the city he was born to love, Detroit. More importantly, Kilpatrick gets intimate about his relationship to his family and his wife in particular. So much so, Carlita Kilpatrick has a chapter “discussing” her husband and the scandal from her point of view, an unusual dimension since the role of political spouses is more often than not silence.
