Mayor indicted on 12 counts

A grand jury Friday filed a 12-count indictment against Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon, including four counts of perjury and two counts of theft over $500. She was also charged with theft under $500, fraudulent misappropriation by a fiduciary and misconduct in office.

The indictment stems in part from gifts she received from former boyfriend and developer Ronald Lipscomb, who had been charged earlier this week.

Dixon, a Democrat, has been the target of a nearly three-year state investigation into corruption at City Hall, an investigation that has centered on allegations that Dixon has used her office to award lucrative contracts to various people including her sister, her then-boyfriend and her former campaign chairman.

Mom-in-law moving into White House

Get ready for the in-law in chief.

President-elect Barack Obama’s mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, is moving into the White House at least temporarily to join Michelle Obama and the two children, transition officials said Friday.

That’s good news not just for late-night comics, but for 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha. During the campaign, Robinson retired from her job as a bank executive secretary to help care for her granddaughters.
