Dixon’s Developer Friend Contributed Thousands To Democratic Party

Unfree State

Doracon Contracting Inc., the development company whose principle, Ronald H. Lipscomb, had a personal relationship with Mayor Sheila Dixon, has made more than $265,000 in political contributions to various Maryland politicians and the Democratic Party, according to records at the Maryland Board of Elections.

Dixon admitted today in a statement to the Sun that she had a personal relationship with the developer and exchanged gifts with him. She issued the statement after documents presented by prosecutors to the Baltimore County District Court gave a more detailed account of its two-year investigation of Dixon, which includes prosecutors scrutinizing thousands of dollars in gifts including fur coats and trips.

Meanwhile, records show that Lipscomb’s company gave $50,000 to the Democratic State Central Committee, $2,750 to Sen. Ulysses Currie, who is currently being investigated by the FBI — and $5,500 to Dixon.

Doracon also gave $2,000 to Democratic Speaker of the House Mike Busch, $3,000 to Comptroller Peter Franchot and $7,070 to Gov. Martin O’Malley.
