Detroit (AP) Detroit's major newspapers are calling on mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to step down for the good for the city after he was charged with perjury and other offenses.

Editorials urging Kilpatrick to quit appear on the web sites of the Detroit Free Press and the Detroit News.

The Free Press says: “if Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick loves Detroit as much as he says he does, he has to quit.”

The News says: “to make things right Kilpatrick should step aside and accept responsibility for his improper conduct.”

Kilpatrick is accused of lying under oath about an affair with an aide. Christine Beatty, who'd also denied the affair under oath, faces many of the same charges.

Kilpatrick says he plans to stay on the job while fighting the charges.
