Dixon has rocky start to day as boxing ring collapses during event (God is funny)
Baltimore Sun ^ | January 10, 2009 | Annie Linskey and Julie Bykowicz

Posted on 01/11/2009 1:19:27 PM PST by Eric Blair 2084

Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon maintained a full schedule of events today, but declined to take questions about yesterday's indictment.

The day was not without hitches. At her first event, at the Upton Boxing Gym for the launch of a citywide fitness program, the mayor and others donned gloves and worked out -- running in a circle in a boxing ring and doing practice punches -- to the tune "Eye of the Tiger." The ring began to move and then the metal stanchions supporting it collapsed.

"It was a little shaky up there and I was like, 'Wow this is a little weak,'" Dixon said. Dixon said after a member of her security detail helped her out of the ring. Nobody was injured.

Dixon was charged yesterday with a 12-count indictment including theft, perjury and fraud, stemming from gifts she received from Ronald H. Lipscomb, a prominent developer and one-time boyfriend whose projects received city tax breaks. At a news conference she denied the charges.

Wow. Why can’t I ever find a boyfriend like that? Some women have all the luck.

Diana, it’s only money.

Plenty of rich divorced lonely women in the world who I could take advantage of too if I wanted to.

I have character. I wouldn’t do that to my family.

I forgot my /sarcasm.

I loathe people like that. Pay-for-Play sure is all the rage in the ‘Rat party these days, isn’t it? I wonder if there’s a running list somewhere...I know it’s BIG NEWS when a Pubbie is caught with his pants down, so to speak, but the ‘Rats always beat us at least 2 to 1 for scandal...and it goes unreported.

Media Bias? Yeppers. :)

Sleaze and corruption when our neighbors/politicians are given power is bipartisan.

Conservatives realize this and don’t want to give our neighbors any more power over us than necessary. Liberals worship the idiots.

Maybe.

All I know is that God gives us subtle signs to let us know He is there.

This is one of them. Judging by the number of responses to this thread....2...nobody is paying attention.

I only became aware of this woman (a rabid smoker-hater and big-time ban proponent, by the way) yesterday. I’ve already posted threads on the Toledo blogs about her scandal. The MSM doesn’t even know she exists.

Ooooops. Typical lib. Holier than thou.

What are those skeletons in my closet? Don’t pay any attention to the femur that just dropped out of my pocket.

I’m here to make the world a better place.

In fairness to the libs, they can say the same thing about Larry “Happy Feet” Craig.

Say one thing and do another. The sheeple don’t care. They keep putting their trust in these idiots.

I'm here, Sir Eric. I'm a little under the weather and I'm finally able to lift my head off my pillow after a couple of days. Indeed, God does give us subtle signs and one’s actions, be they good or bad, come to light. Hey, vote for me, I care because I have a “D” after my name.

I went to school in Maryland. I’m a Terp. Beautiful state. Sad to see what has happened to it. There is a concerted effort to break across the Mason-Dixon Line/Beltway and turn VA into a sinkhole like DC or MD.
