Ex-Detroit mayor denies any talk about stripper

Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick says he can state "unequivocally" that discussions about the death of a stripper never came up among high-ranking officials in his administration.
Kilpatrick's comment came at the end of more than two hours of testimony in federal court in Detroit. Tamara Greene's family is suing him, claiming he obstructed the police investigation into her unsolved fatal shooting in 2003 because she danced for him at a party months earlier.
Kilpatrick denies the allegation and says there was no party. He was testifying Monday about what may have happened to his e-mail in 2002 and 2003.
Kilpatrick says Greene's death was never a subject of any e-mail.
Kilpatrick is in prison for violating probation in a state criminal case. He's also awaiting trial on federal tax and fraud charges.
