DETROIT (WKZO) -- A defense attorney in a federal corruption case in Detroit says that a man who claims he hid 90,000-dollars in cash in his pants would have looked like the Michelin Man and couldn't possibly have made it past airport security.  The argument came from Kwame Kilpatrick's attorney James Thomas, reacting to previous testimony that in 2008 Mahlon Clift snuck the cash to Kilpatrick at the request of contractor Bobby Ferguson.  Kilpatrick, his father and Bobby Ferguson are in their third month in federal court facing dozens of charges.
