Dixon: Lipscomb is "a player"

Dixon on Lipscomb: "He had multiple girlfriends ... He was a player. And I was the cheapest of his friends."
Hope he used a condom!

What the?!

"A Baltimore judge refused Thursday to set a man free before his Jan. 26 attempted-murder trial ... after it was revealed that an officer altered a photo of the defendant to get positive witness identification."

TDR: The city's not giving up the Wells Fargo "reverse redlining" lawsuit and is instead amending to file it a third time.

'All the Best'

To Sheila from Keiffer.
Very mature of him!

Unidentified man, 21, shot in the torso in the 100 block of North Franklintown Road.
Two murders in a week? That's really relatively peaceful!

'a bizarre ending to an historic day of drama'

Maybe Dixon had to go, though she was defiant to the end.

Chauncey Jones

Ok, ok, who is to blame for Chauncey Jones being out on the streets? His parole agent? The State's Attorney's Office? Judge Yvonne Holt-Stone?

Big, BIG Dixon News?!

Fenton Tweets: "So, I'm not covering the Dixon case, but all indications right now that there will be big, big news at 1:30"

Fox tweets, "Negotiations are underway for a plea deal in Mayor Shelia Dixon's case"

Dixon and five jurors were due in court today

Dixon Speaks!

Not to the public, exactly.. instead she rang up Annie Linskey for a little girl talk, moaning, "The bad choice I made was getting in a relationship with Ron Lipscomb"
Way to pass the buck!
Maybe the judge will sentence her to six weeks of Tough Love bootcamp.
She went on to gripe about her perceived media mis-portrayals: "That I'm a corrupt human being, because I'm not ... That I use my office for my personal gain, and I don't. That I'm a person that used these positions for myself, and I don't."
Then do us all a favor, take the fall and step down!
She has a point though-- developers surely gained more out of her being in office than she ever did.
Think they'll cover her legal bills in gratitude?
