Not exactly what Kilpatrick is looking for

Ralph Sherman is a clever mischief maker.

When the St. Clair Shores resident heard that embattled Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was starting a legal defense fund and intended to call it the "Detroit Justice Fund," Sherman filed the appropriate papers with the state, paid a $20 registration fee and grabbed the name for himself.

He's already received two donations intended for the mayor: one for $100,000 in play money, and another containing a Chuck E. Cheese coupon and a suggestion that Kilpatrick's mother, U.S. Rep. Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick, take her son out for a meal.

The Detroit Free Press has the story.
