From the AJC:

A daughter of Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin pleaded guilty today to federal charges that she illegally concealed proceeds from her former husband’s transcontinental drug-trafficking ring.

Kai Franklin Graham, 35, the oldest of the mayor’s three children, pleaded guilty to structuring financial transactions in a way that avoided scrutiny from federal authorities.

    me: “I wonder if Shirley is still an ardent drug warrior?”

    wife: “Well DUH, she IS a politician!”

    I’m just sayin’…..

    (insert applause to status-quo drug war for getting ‘another druggie’ off the streets! No..wait…)

    It’s just sad, sad, sad all the way around. Kinda pathetic too, having a kid think that laundering money for thugs was a way of life. I know Shirley Franklin didn’t raise up any child to end-up like that. No one is likely hurting more in this than our Mayor. She needs our support now more than ever.
