Baltimore Mayor Convicted
Remember earlier in the year when Barack Obama uninvited Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon from The White House? Here is how The Baltimore Sun reported on it in February.
After being invited yesterday to join more than 70 mayors for a meeting with President Barack Obama at the White House today, indicted Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon was abruptly un-invited hours later, according to her spokesman.
“We were really hoping that the mayor was going to make this meeting at the White House,” said spokesman Scott Peterson. “But it does not look like it is going to happen.”
Peterson could not say why the mayor was un-invited to the meeting, coordinated by the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
Now we know why. Just breaking news from WBAL, the Democratic Mayor of Baltimore has been convicted of misappropriation of funds.
A Baltimore Circuit Court jury has convicted Mayor Sheila Dixon of one count of misappropriation for the misuse of gift cards from developer Patrick Turner.
Listening to the local news, this could force her from office….
