Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was sent to jail today by 36th District Court Judge Ronald Giles for violating terms of his bond. Some are calling for Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm (D) to remove Kiplatrick from office, a move her office seems to be seriously considering.

Kilpatrick was elected to his second term as Detroit Mayor in 2005.
