Gov. Jennifer Granholm (D) revved up public hearings on Kwame Kilpatrick's fate this morning. First up was a law expert to testify about the secret side deal Kilpatrick struck to keep the text messages private, and now testifying is the city's attorney in charge of Freedom of Information Act requests. Kilpatrick himself will not attend, his attorney has said.

The Detroit Free Press is streaming the hearing on its Web site.
