Detroit sues ex-monitor for fraudulent billing

I have an anti-Kwame news policy but feel obligated to pass this along:

Detroit— The city has sued former police monitor Sheryl Robinson Wood, who text messages show had an affair with former Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, for more than $10 million in fees she received.

And in a new allegation, the city claims Wood and her former employers submitted fraudulent invoices to the federal court.

The filing is the latest attempt by the city to recoup fees after text messages revealed a relationship between Kilpatrick and Robinson Wood, who oversaw court-mandated reform of the city Police Department.

For the record, Kilpatrick denied having an “affair” with Wood because, he said, it was only a one-night stand. At the time, Wood was a partner with the Baltimore, Md., office of Venable, LLP.
