Speaking of Detroit Councilwoman JoAnn Watson....

Murphy's Law in the comments to the post below stated:

Jo-Ann Watson and Kwame Kenyatta gonna get you if you keep pointing stuff like this out.

Not really, 'cause Jo-Ann Watson, in addition to getting the sweetest deal on property taxes ever, is now kinda busy putting her hand out to the Big 0:

Detroit councilwoman to Obama: We voted for you, now bail us out.

A Detroit city council member is asking President Obama to bail out the financially troubled city in return for residents’ overwhelmingly supporting his successful re-election bid.

“There ought to be a quid pro quo," said Councilwoman JoAnn Watson, according to My Fox Detroit.

Nearly 75 percent of voters in Wayne County, which includes Detroit, voted for Obama on Nov. 6.

"After the election of Jimmy Carter, the honorable Coleman Alexander Young, he went to Washington, D.C., and came home with some bacon," Watson said. "That's what you do," Watson said.

Young was Detroit's mayor for 20 years and served as vice chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 1977 to 1981.

The White House has expressed no plans to bail out the cash-strapped city that some experts say could go bankrupt by the end of the year.

No, you can't make this stuff up.
