Mayor Dixon: Someone From The Community Planted Seed Against Me
In an exclusive interview with the AFRO, Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon speculates on why the state prosecutor’s office launched its two-year state prosecutor’s investigation against her.
“I think the seed that was planted was from someone from our community, to be honest,” Dixon told the AFRO. “I think it came out of City Hall, I’ll be honest with you. People don’t want to see people be successful for whatever reason—either from my personal choices I’ve made or my professional choices. In this business, there’s a lot of jealously.”
Dixon also complained about unfair treatment from the press and the state prosecutor, and once against played the race card by saying she was being singled out because she was a woman and black. So far, Dixon has not been formally charged of any wrongdoing.
