Stay tuned to see how the defense combats testimony from a city employee who directly accused ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick of steering water department deals to his friend Bobby Ferguson.

Then, Harris wobbled.
That might not have been his boss’ exact words.
“Something similar to ‘the mayor wants it done,’” Harris said.
