Dixon gifts probed

Prosecutors look at mayor's ties to developer who got city breaks

Prosecutors are investigating whether Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon received thousands of dollars in gifts - including fur coats - from a prominent developer whose projects benefited from tax breaks and zoning changes she supported as City Council president, a document obtained by The Sun shows.

Court records, drafted by the state prosecutor's office in November, indicate that Dixon also went on lavish trips to Boston, the Bahamas, Chicago and Colorado with the developer, Ronald H. Lipscomb. In one instance, the two left Baltimore for New York by train hours after she had voted to approve a tax break for one of his company's largest projects.

Yesterday, a Baltimore City grand jury began calling witnesses in the case to testify in a courthouse a block from City Hall.

The documents, presented by prosecutors to a Baltimore County District Court, offer the most detailed accounting yet of the two-year investigation into City Hall spending and provide new information about possible ethical lapses that occurred when Dixon was City Council president.

Who wears fur anymore? Isn't that kind of reserved for pimps and professional athletes? (sorry, same thing) On a similar note. Alderman Michael Mcgee jr. was found guilty on 9 federal charges in Milwaukee for taking bribes, soliciting bribes, extortion, and a few other ones. He also as a state level trial that will pile on the years he will spend in prison. This guy is a real piece of work. Black panther stuff, wanna be gangsta, Just another scum bag going to prison.
