Baltimore Mayor Convicted of Fraud

Baltimore mayor, Sheila Dixon, was convicted yesterday on a single charge she took gift cards intended for the city’s poor. Although she was acquitted of felony theft charges, her misdemeanor conviction could force her from office, reports the Associated Press. Jurors deliberated more than six days after hearing accusations that the Democrat improperly used or kept $630 worth of gift cards. She was accused of soliciting most of the cards from a developer and buying electronics at Best Buy, clothes at Old Navy, and knickknacks at Target.
