JUST LIKE 'THE WIRE'

WASH POST Investigators with the Maryland state prosecutor's office, who have been probing Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon's financial dealings during her tenure as City Council president, searched her home yesterday for more than seven hours. A team arrived at 6:30 a.m., when the mayor was home with her two children, and she let them in, said her attorney, Dale Kelberman. He said investigators took some documents but added that he did not know exactly what those were and had not seen the search warrant.

Dixon (D) declined to answer questions when she left her home about 10 a.m.

At 1:40 p.m., seven people emerged from the house carrying six cardboard boxes and a large cooler on wheels. The team included a state trooper in uniform and two plainclothes officers, along with investigators from the state prosecutor's office. The team loaded the boxes and the cooler into a minivan and drove away.

Not precisely. In "The Wire" no one ever went after the Mayor in such a fashion. However, the Baltimore city attorney did go after a state senator with a Baltimore district.

Evidence of financial misconduct taken out in a cooler? WTF?
