Sheila Dixon, the Mayor of Baltimore, has been indicted on charges of theft and perjury:
Mayor Sheila Dixon was indicted Friday on charges that she accepted illegal gifts during her time as mayor and City Council president, including travel, fur coats and gift cards intended for the poor that she allegedly used instead for a holiday shopping spree. …
Prosecutors said the gift cards were to be distributed to needy families, but were instead used by Dixon to buy electronics–including an Xbox, a PlayStation 2 and a camcorder–clothes and other merchandise and also handed out to members of her staff.
Actually, if you read far enough–paragraph number twelve–you can learn that Dixon is a Democrat. The Democrats are reminding us, on a daily basis, why they have been known as the party of corruption for more than 150 years.
