Ex-Mayor Kilpatrick mum about parole woes

Kwame Kilpatrick outside federal court.

Kwame Kilpatrick was tight-lipped today about failing to pay $500 restitution to the city and falling short in his community-service requirement.

Kilpatrick ignored questions from reporters while entering federal court with his lawyer James C. Thomas.

He then cut in line past dozens of lawyers, court staff and others waiting in line in frigid temperatures outside court.
