DETROIT (AP) _ A newspaper reports Detroit Mayor Kwame
Kilpatrick may have transferred some appointees into civil service
positions before he left office.
The Detroit News reported Friday that it has identified six
people who were moved last month into the Detroit Workforce
Development Department.
The newspaper says Mayor Ken Cockrel Jr. is looking into the
transfers.
Kilpatrick appointed more than 100 people to work in his
administration. Most lost their positions when he resigned as part
of plea deals to two criminal cases.
Cockrel spokesman Daniel Cherrin says the appointees may have
been transferred into several departments.
The Associated Press left a message seeking comment Friday night
from a Kilpatrick lawyer.
