Embattled former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick has penned a tell-all book in which he slams his critics.

The book, “Surrendered! The Rise, Fall and Revelation of Kwame Kilpatrick,” includes broadsides fired at current Detroit Mayor Dave Bing and former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm, two figures who, he said, wasted no time jumping on him. Bing, Granholm and Kilpatrick are Democrats.

“People who came out against me were given prime-time coverage,” Kilpatrick says in the book according to reports. “And Governor Jennifer Granholm, who was failing as head of the state thanks to a reputation for being unable to make a decision, seized a chance to prove that she was tough. She waited until the line of people calling for my head grew long enough and then took cuts. That’s leadership, in her typical style!”

Reports say Kilpatrick also explains how his ill-fated relationship with Christine Beatty started, too. He says the relationship between him and his former chief of staff evolved into a romance.

“We acknowledged our underlying feelings,” he wrote. “And then we both said, aloud, that we couldn’t go to that place. It wasn’t our path. But we did. The kiss ignited something, and it wouldn’t go away.”

While it’s quite possible that his sordid past could produce good sales, Kilpatrick won’t receive much profit from it. The Detroit News reported that a Michigan judge declared that proceeds from the book should go towards $800,000 of the $1 million restitution Kilpatrick owes the city to cover the plea-bargain that avoided trial on criminal charges stemming from a text message scandal that centered around romantic messages between him and Beatty.

Kilpatrick will be paroled from state prison later this month, having served the minimum of an 18-month to five-year sentence for violating probation when he hid personal finances from what Wayne County Circuit Judge David Groner said should have been applied toward restitution.

The former mayor is to face federal charges in a trial next year on federal racketeering, fraud and tax charges.

Despite that, Kilpatrick still relishes the opportunity to tell his story. In his book he says it’s time for him to give his version of events.

“The world has heard the press’ side for almost 10 years, and it’s caused a tidal wave of sentiment against me,” the book says according to the Detroit Free Press. “Now it’s my turn, because I never got a chance to tell my story without editing, without interruption. I don’t care to tell you that I’m right and others are wrong. I’m telling this story because what you think you know about Kwame Kilpatrick is largely inaccurate.”
