DETROIT (AP) _ More text messages between ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame
Kilpatrick and his former chief of staff, Christine Beatty, have
been released by a judge.

Like others given out in the past, this latest batch that came
out on Monday includes sexually explicit banter between the two,
who later were jailed for lying about their affair.

Also included are texts in which Kilpatrick, Beatty and others
react to a May 2003 news conference by Gary Brown. The former
deputy police chief claimed he was fired for investigating the
then-mayor's protection unit.

Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Timothy Kenny last week ruled
the text messages are public records and might shed light on city
government misconduct.
