Mysterious bagman identified by Kilpatrick prosecutor

Prosecutors identified the mysterious “Courier A” who allegedly delivered $90,000 in cash from contractor Bobby Ferguson to Kwame Kilpatrick in Detroit and Texas.

That man is Mahlon Clift, a friend of the former mayor’s who was a groomsman in Kilpatrick’s wedding to Carlita Kilpatrick.

Kilpatrick wrote about him in his autobiography.

Up next, Victor Mercado’s lawyer Martin Crandall.
