Mayor Of Baltimore, Obama Supporter, Indicted

I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! And, yup, you guessed it, that “D” word is missing from this local story

ABC2NEWS.COM has just confirmed that Mayor Sheila Dixon has been indicted. She faces 12 charges, in connection with an investigation into bribery scandal.  Among them, perjury, theft, fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary and misconduct in office.

The charges stem from when Dixon was City Council President in 2004.  That year, the Council amended the Ethics Disclosure law, which required public employees to disclose any gifts they received from anyone with a financial interest in the city.

According to state prosecutors, Dixon received gifts from a real estate developer that same year.  The gifts, included travel, hotels and a gift certificate.  State prosecutors say she used that certificate to buy gift cards.

Kudos to The Baltimore Sun, the AP, and Reuters identify her party affiliation, though. None of the stories mention that she was a big Obama supporter, and there was a big deal when she endorsed him (big shock, huh?) Too bad Obama won’t be “working with her to bring change in the months and years to come.” She’s a real “trailblazer.” She is soon to find out how large Barry’s bus is when it hits her.

Interestingly, Obama and the Dems were just fine with Dixon being a “working mother.” Sarah Palin, not so much.

    Teach i think that Dixon’s 2 kids are in college (she is 55), they may need a mommy a bit less than Trig. Corruption will always be with us, what matters to me more is how each party handles it when it is uncovered. Blago was impeached, with his own party in the majority. When Duke Cuningham and Delay and Sen Stevens were indicted the Republican party rallied around them. “Cold Cash Jefferson” was immediately stripped of his committee positions by the Democrats.

    The nation owes more than thanks to three unlikely modern day patriots: professional poker player, musician, and retired attorney, Leo Donofrio; life long Democrat and former Pennsylvania assistant attorney general, Phil Berg; and Soviet emigree and attorney, Dr. Orly Taitz (she’s also a dentist).

    While Mr. Donofrio painstakingly established the airtight case that BHO could not be an Article II “natural born citizen” (at BHO’s birth, dad was British/Kenyan, not American, citizen) Leo’s Stay of the 12/15/08 electoral college vote was denied by SCOTUS as procedurally unripe.

    Nevertheless, since no congressman and senator objected on 1/8/09 to Congress’ count and certification of the electoral vote which would have turned resolution of Obama’s eligibility issue over to Congress — rendering moot the Berg and Taitz (Lightfoot) cases — Berg finally does achieve standing on the issue of actual harm, to be addressed at the Friday 1/9/09 SCOTUS Conference on Writ of Certiorari. Obama’s failure to submit evidence of his constitutional qualification for the 1/9/09 conference will mean he cannot thereafter challenge Berg’s request to enjoin the 1/8/09 Congressional electoral count and certification, albeit retroactive, scheduled for SCOTUS conference Friday 1/16/09. Moreover, Chief Justice Roberts has scheduled a full Court conference on the Lightfoot case Friday 1/23/09 in the event there needs to be a Constitutionally mandated action, the Inauguration itself, to enjoin retroactively.

    Now that BHO is in checkmate and cannot be POTUS, he can be a patriot as well. He need not subject the nation to the expense and trauma of requiring SCOTUS to overrule his ‘Presidency’. BHO can and should voluntarily step down with Biden becoming Acting POTUS under the 20th Amendment, and under the agreement all potential claims by the Government for itself and on behalf of others against BHO are released.
