Baltimore Mayor Sheila A. Dixon said Wednesday that a photo of her in Tuesday’s The Daily Record was a “low blow.”Call it kind of ironic that a Democrat would give a big 'F U' to a press corps that did so much to help them take over Congress and the White House, but considering that Dixon is a liberal politician, her lack of class, much less dignity shouldn't surprise anyone.
In the photo, which was shot at a city council luncheon Monday, Dixon has her middle finger raised between her eyes and is looking directly at the camera. Her spokesman said she was adjusting her glasses.
“I have a habit of using my fingers to put my glasses up,” Dixon said at a news conference that was broadcast on WJZ-TV. “I really think that, that was a low blow, and I really did not appreciate it, but, you know, such is life in this business. Now I’m going to be very careful how I put my glasses on and how I adjust them. But, you know, I really think that was a low blow.”
The photo was taken by The Daily Record staff photographer Rich Dennison after two photographers and at least one camera crew were let back into the city council’s lunch chamber Monday afternoon. They, along with two other cameramen, had been ejected from the public meeting by members of Dixon’s staff just moments after the mayor consulted with her chief of staff, Demaune A. Millard.
