Looks like the Chicago Democrat Machine couldn’t protect one of its own when word leaked out of former Alderman Sharon Dixon’s arrest Sunday and subsequent release after a mental health evaluation at Mt. Sinai. Second City Cop and Guns Save Life spilled the beans, forcing “authorities” to do the right thing instead of sweeping the entire episode under the carpet.
She was re-arrested and is now being held behind bars and concertina wire.
(Chicago Tribune) – A former Chicago alderman was ordered held on bond today after being charged with illegally carrying a loaded gun at a West Side police station over the weekend, authorities said.
Sharon Denise Dixon–who ended her term as alderman of the 24 th Ward in 2011–was ordered held in lieu of $25,000 bail in a hearing today before Cook County Criminal Court Judge Donald Panarese, said state’s attorney’s office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton. Dixon, 50, of the 1600 block of South Central Park Avenue, is charged with aggravated unlawful use of a loaded weapon and failure to register a firearm.
