Former Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has been sentenced up to five years in prison for violating the terms of his probation. Kilpatrick plead guilty on obstruction of justice charges in September 2008 prompting his resignation as mayor.
Mike Paul, Kilpatrick's spokesman, said that his client's sentence was like "South Africa during the days of apartheid."
Kwame Kilpatrick is many things. Nelson Mandela isn't one of them.
