After publishing our exclusive story on Kwame Kilpatrick on Tuesday we give readers an opportunity to listen to the Deadline Detroit interview with the ex-Detroit mayor.
Kilpatrick talks about being locked up, his conversion to accepting Jesus, becoming a preacher, his fiancé, his children, his criminal case and the pain of leaving Detroit.
"I'm going to say this now, I'm not running for anything. I believe I've been put in a completely different lane," he says in a 1 hour, 23 minute phone interview recorded with his permission.
Kilpatrick was sentenced in 2013 to 28 years for public corruption. In January, President Trump commuted his sentence to time served.
Below is a condensed, 55-minute version of the conversation.
