On Friday, January 9, Mayor Sheila Dixon (D) of Baltimore was indicted following a three-year investigation.
Mayor Dixon, a member of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun gang “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” allegedly did not report lavish luxuries such as fur coats and trips given to her by a local developer. She is also accused of stealing at least $2,000 worth of gift cards, purchasing an Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, digital camcorder, and other electronics, for her own personal use. The gift cards were donated to the city for needy families.
Mayor Dixon now joins the ranks of beleaguered anti-gun politicians like Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) and Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick (D) of Detroit. Perhaps these characters should focus on abiding by the law themselves instead of persecuting law-abiding citizens.
