Attorney Norman Yatooma claims that a stripper received $1,000 for performing at a dope-fueled party held at the Detroit mayor's mansion under the supervision of former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.
An exotic dancer, Tamika Ruffin, gave a statement that she saw Kilpatrick's wife attack a woman with a table leg or board who was giving the former mayor a lap dance.
Yatooma is the lawyer for another stripper killed after the 2002 party. The statement was in response to Kilpatrick and the city trying to dismiss a lawsuit from the family of Tamara Greene, the 27-year-old who was shot to death in 2003 after attending the party. Her family believes that city officials are attempting to suppress the investigation.
No one has been charged and the city denies squashing the investigation.
