Sheila Dixon Goes National
In case you missed it last night or as reported on WBAL news this evening, Sheila Dixon was the brunt of one of the jokes used on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night. Leno said:
“The mayor of Baltimore, a woman named Sheila Dixon, has now been charged with 12 counts of felony theft, perjury, fraud and misconduct in office. The good news — she’s now eligible to become the mayor of Detroit or the governor of Illinois,” Leno said.
However, he didn’t mention that her lawyer went on a 40 minute tirade during the press conference about how this is a Republican-led witch hunt to get her removed from office. I’m sure most liberal viewers in Maryland bit the bait, but those of us who went to colleges where they teach you to think for yourself saw right through this.
Why would the Republicans waste money and time trying to bring down the mayor of a crime-ridden corrupt city that sucks money from the state budget and hemorrhages middle class residents? Do the Democrats think the Republicans are behind a conspiracy to replace her with a Republican candidate? How ridiculous! A Republican hasn’t been elected Mayor of Baltimore in nearly 46 years. That’s why the city is so much better than it used to be. Oh, wait…
