O'Malley on Dixon: 'A difficult day'

Governor

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D), the former mayor of Baltimore, has issued a terse statement in response to news that the city's current mayor, Sheila Dixon (D), is resigning as part of a deal related to her conviction on embezzling gift cards intended for the needy.

Here is the governor's statement in full:

"This is a difficult day in the history of our City. All of us need to support Council President Rawlings-Blake as she takes on the critically important work of leading Baltimore's progress as our new Mayor."

I'm as Liberal as a Democrat comes and as understanding as anyone.
This wretched piece of crap should be locked up. Stealing is lowlife enough as it is, stealing from the poor is diabolical.

What a filthy skank.
