DETROIT, July 11, 2022 ~ Federal prosecutors have opened up an investigation into former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick’s fundraising efforts, and are attempting to seize his funds currently held by PayPal and fundraising site Plumfund.
“Keep in mind that Kwame has judgment of nine million dollars against him right now,” said Federal Criminal Defense Attorney and former Federal Prosecutor Michael Bulotta to 760 WJR’s Tom Jordan and Kevin Dietz. “He has not made a payment in the year and a half that he has been out of custody, but before that it has been nine years since he has made any payments…not according to the reports I’ve read.”

Kilpatrick again garnered unwanted attention when he allegedly started a crowdfunding plan to raise money to purchase an $800,000 house in Florida. However, the funding site no longer lists the references to the gated community.
This comes 18 months after former President Donald Trump commuted Kilpatrick’s 28-year prison sentence for racketeering conspiracy involving defrauding donators, and rigging city initiatives.
