What Is "Inappropriate"?

Baltimore’s Gay Mayoral Spokesman Suspended

Baltimore’s Mayor Sheila Dixon will have to speak for herself.

Gay mayoral spokesman Anthony McCarthy has been placed on leave for nebulous “inappropriate behavior”:

[McCarthy] is being investigated by Baltimore County police for “inappropriate behavior” and was placed on indefinite leave from his position, the mayor’s office confirmed yesterday.

A Baltimore County police spokesman said the department received a complaint about McCarthy’s behavior last week, but the spokesman declined to make the report public or offer details about the complaint.

A “shocked and disappointed” Dixon learned of the complaint on Saturday, but allegedly doesn’t know the nature of McCarthy’s alleged inappropriateness.

Someone needs to get that girl in the loop! And mood stabilizers: the clueless mayor’s simply shocked and disappointed for no reason!

    In several media reports, the mayor made clear that she simply wasn’t commenting on the nature of the complaints against McCarthy. I have not seen a media report (unless you count a Queerty snark, that is) where the mayor indicates in any manner that she is personally unaware of the nature of the allegations. A local outlet is now reporting that the allegations involve inappropriate conduct with underage males.
