Council to vote on efforts for removing Detroit mayor

The Detroit City Council has scheduled votes tomorrow on three resolutions involving indicted Mayor Kilpatrick.

One resolution calls for the council to begin proceedings to force Kilpatrick to forfeit the office.

The second asks Governor Granholm to remove Kilpatrick under state law for misconduct in office.

And the third censures the mayor but leaves him in office.

The moves follow a text-messaging sex scandal involving Kilpatrick and his role in an 8.4 million-dollar settlement of a lawsuit against the city.

Kilpatrick and his ex-chief of staff are charged with perjury for testifying in that case that they didn't have a romantic relationship.
