    Just over the wire....Baltimore Mayor (a lady yet) indicted on 12 counts of perjury, theft, malfeasance in office.

    Is there no end?

    OICU812 - I'm with you. The English stuck Cromwell's head on a spike at the Tower of London until it rotted and fell off.

    Personally, I think we should hang a crooked politician or a cheating CEO from Rockerfeller Center the same way.

    Not trying to be barbaric, just offering a clear object lesson LOL

    'According to the indictment, the total value of the gifts Dixon accepted or misappropriated is under $25,000. The amount includes clothing, electronics, travel and lodging.

    "That's all they've got?" asked Ronald W. Walters, a government professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. He said the charges against Dixon didn't approach the level of misconduct alleged against Illinois Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich, who prosecutors say attempted to sell a U.S. Senate seat.

    "We're witnessing a situation going down in Illinois, and this is nowhere near anything like that," Walters said. "The substance of it, on its face, would appear to be minor." '

    I hope everyone feels better now that the "government professor" has provided us with the proper perspective. Obviously, if "that's all they got", not only should she not be indicted, she should be awarded an honorary Illinois Clean Government Medal.

    MTA Tom - I live in the area. Yeah, she her thievry was petty anty....but still, she bought gift cards using money for a program for the poor and then went shopping with them. I'm sorry, but its still "hang them high" in my book.

    The crooks in Maryland have got nothing on the pros in Illinois. Blago may soon be looking for another position, why not plug him in somewhere in Maryland to show the politicians there how it is done?

    Sorry boys,,,,Illinois has NOTHING on D.C.,,,,can you say frank, dodd, pelosi, waters, jefferson, boxer et. al????

    A big problem we face today is trying to "measure" the crime,,,,just ignore the non-haneous ones,,,,after all it's just money....

    What happened to a "crime is crime"???? Not saying we need the death penalty for embezzelment, but it is all a crime and elected officials convicted of a crime should be stripped of all gains,,,,just like a drug dealer.

    It was career bank robber Willie Sutton who responded, "because that's where the money is" when asked WHY he robbed banks.
