Out of Pocket Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon is Convicted of Embezzlement

- By Bossip Staff

Baltimore’s Mayor, Sheila Dixon, was convicted of a single misdemeanor charge of embezzlement last week. Apparently the mayor was taking gift cards that were supposed to be for the city’s disenfranchised children and using them to buy an Xbox systems and other electronics. More once you pop the top.

Dixon could face up to five years in prison, but it hasn’t been decided whether or not they will seek jail time. However during this time, Dixon, plans to remain in office and addressed the city in Press conference:

We guess desperate times called for desperate measures, huh Sheila??

    So sad….there was so much joy when she was elected the first female mayor of B-more. I am not convinced she is “guilty” and I will keep her and her family lifted in prayer.

  • as seen on t.v.

    Regardless of the circumstances…This woman was entrusted to take care of a city that is already plagued with lots of problems…Baltimore already has the reputation of a drug haven…Now on top of that we have a corrupt mayor to add to the list…SMH…

    Thats just crazy. Shes the mayor with a check ten times as much as mine and yet I can afford to buy my own Xbox and Wii

  • memchee

    C’mon, how much were the cards worth?

    She should have been fined and made to pay restitution at the most!

    I don’t think too many people would vote her out of office over this, if she is doing a good job. Although, this will not reflect favorably on her political record.

  • hazysin

    I live in Baltimore and all i can do is shake my head. Seriously, $600 worth of gift cards!!! A trial with jury deliberations lasting longer that the actual trial! All this shows is how petty Baltimore really is. She could have paid restitution for real.

    I just want my other trash day back Sheila!!!

  • Ghetto Beoch

    $600 is $600 shes a fuking politician, she should not be doing this… WTF is up with her dumb ass.. fire her ass…

  • Kioki

    Shame

  • T

    She should have hired my company. I guess I cursed her.

  • Tillybeans

    I can’t believe that the state paid $3 million for this trial over $300. I don’t think she spent the cards deliberately and I believe her story that she thought her boyfriend at the time left the cards for her. It’s not like she needed the cards/money and also she didn’t spend all of the cards. The police found the cards on her nightstatnd. So it wasn’t like she was trying to hide them. She has done a fantastic job as mayor

    BTW…this happened in 2006 when she was serving as City Council President. The city council did an inquiry into this a few years ago and they found that she didn’t do anything wrong….she must have really pissed “someone” off…

    She looks like a fish. =|

    when did jasmine guy become a mayor?

  • TyfromBaltimore

    @ memchee, as a resident of Baltimore, I can tell you firsthand that alot of people want her to step down. People comment that it was petty for the city to bring her up on charges, but how petty is it that a mayor that makes 6 figures would steal gift cards that were clearly intended for needy families? even when she was serving as city council president she was making a great salary so there is no excuse. you gotta be held accountable.

  • D Brown

    Mayor Dixon should buy some more gift cards and do the right thing with them. STOP thinking of yourself and family. PLEASE give to peoples that really need the gift cards. Too many peoples unemployed.!

  • MobTownRules

    Ok , since there are people on here that will defend her based solely on this woman’s race , lets put this into perspective :

    1) EVERYONE in Baltimore politics is dirty . Dont believe me , take a look at what our now-governor did to former police chief who was in the process of investigating him .

    2) This woman stole from needy children . For those of you who arent from Bmore…let me clue you in…the needy in Baltimore city are primarily black or hispanic . She stole from the less fortunate of her own people .

    3) Baltimore politicians , excluding Kurt Schmoke , are not known for being exceptionally bright or trustworthy .

    4) Ask around , this is not the first or second time Ms Dixon has been involved in something fishy .

    5) Most Baltimoreans AKA BALTIMORONS would elect Marion Berry , were he to move to Charm City .

    I do genuinely hope my post has offended others from Baltimore . It is a classless , drug infested , gang filled cesspool that should be flushed . Baltimore seems to find its share of scumbags from all over the country as the local residents do not have the backbone 2 say no to drugs and try to better themselves or their environment . May someone have mercy on the soul of Baltimore because its obvious GOD DOESNT !!

  • Mekkah

    Mob town..politics everywhere are dirty..this did not just start with her and Baltimore..offending the people of Baltimore is good for what?..give it a rest..

  • Hot Saucy

    Ok, I live in Baltimore city and honestly i cld care less…..i c what goes on and Sheila spending gift cards is the least of the cities problems…..petty as hell if u ask me….was it wrong, sure, was it worth a huge spectacle, not at all…half the people that were gettn the gifts are prolly cheatin the system anyway…..she knew they werent for her but who cares……

  • Mekkah

    Mob..again..dirty politics didn’t start in Baltimore…it’s everywhere…heard of D.C., Detroit?…insulting Baltimorians is good for what? you haven’t answered that…if you are angry with the mayor, fine..insulting the residents of Baltimore is just immature and stupid…but then again, you ARE worried about what people from Brooklyn etc think of you..lol

  • TyfromBaltimore

    MOB YOU CAN MOVE WHEREVER YOU’D LIKE BUT I CAN FULLY ASSURE YOU THAT CORRUPTION IS EVERYWHERE. INSULTING PEOPLE IS NOT THE ANSWER. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO BETTER THE COMMUNITY IN WHICH YOU LIVE? WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO EXPOSE CORRUPTION IN THE CITY? WHAT ARE YOU DOING AS A CITIZEN TO MAKE THINGS BETTER. I’M INVOLVED IN LOTS OF GROUPS IF YOU REALLY WANT TO PUT THAT PINNED UP AGGRESSION TO WORK INSTEAD OF WORDS!

  • Unkle Ruckus
