Maurine Dickey Would Like to Apologize For Her Comments Made During FBI Raid

One of the first people with whom I spoke Monday morning, following news that federal agents had swarmed Dallas County HQ, was Commissioner Maurine Dickey. Some of what she said that morning had been repeated myriad times since. Like, say, her response to the news that FBI agents were in John Wiley Price's office and at his house: "Should I dance, or should I sing?" Or her contention that FBI agents were in Mike Cantrell's office, which county officials and the FBI hastily corrected -- and which prompted Cantrell to say yesterday that he's considering filing a lawsuit against his fellow county commissioner.

Maybe that's why this just showed up in the inbox:

Update: Upon further review, "apologize" was way too strong a word. I apologize.

Maurine Dickey is irresponsible with that mouth and her actions daily.....makes it up as she goes...she lies and misrepresents herself all the time...she had those teaparty people fooled...So funny....such ashame!  She walks out holding her notebook...that's funny too...she has probably never come to court prepared!  She is the joke of the Republican Party.  Thank God for people like Mike Cantrell!!!!!

I think Maurine should have stood her ground. Never apologize for what you know is right and to Hell with those who are wrong!

Sorry Maurine let the pressure get to her.  She should not have apologized -- at least not to a worm like Cantrell.

I agree Cantrell's a worm, however Maurine is a bit of a bitch; and no she shouldn't have to apologize to lower life forms

I hope Cantrell sues and puts her sorry-ass excuse of a "barbecue" joint into a serious hurt.

Back peddling to avoid being sued. 

Cantrell:  go get her!

Not much of a case to begin with. She didn't knowingly say something she knew to be untrue. And at the federal level, there are no criminal defamation laws in the United States. Texas doesn't have any either.

Please don't. We don't need more tired head over commissioner court bickering. I can see it now:

Your honor the def. intentionally spread lies concerning my client in honor to inflict permanent damage to his reputation and therefore harm his political career.

Judge: You mean inflicting more harm than piddly suing someone for misstating what FBI agents were doing outside your office accomplishes in the first place?

Yes your honor, you see my client does not like the def. as they have a history of not playing well together in the sandbox.

We can only hope Cantrell files such a stupid lawsuit.  He needs to come out of the closet and switch parties.  He's not even a RINO.  He's certainly no GOP.

No, Robert, Maureen Dickey would NOT like to apologize for her comments.  She WOULD like to continue her impersonation of Michele Bachmann, though.  So, maybe you should withdraw your apology and continue your impersonation of Jon Stewart.  (That, by the way, is a compliment.)

We are now waiting for what's called in legal circles Race to the FBI.

Those who get there first will get the best deals.  I can think of a couple who appear to need to make the run.

I'm more interested in the $100,000 cash they found in JWP's safe.

So what you trying to say; A black man can't have money?Hell, if he's been on the commission court for all this time, I know they make a decent salary, so what if the man is a penny pincher; he's entitled to spend his money, or not the way he wants to.How much money's in your safe??

I always thought that you put that cash into the freezer like (who was it former US. Rep Jackson) of New Orleans did.

Rep. William Jefferson of New Orleans.  The same man who during Hurricane Katrina used rescue helicopters to rescue his custom made suits from his house.

Amidst the confusion caused by events like an FBI raid, anyone could jump to wrong conclusions. She is a human, like the rest of us, and she made an honest mistake. She should receive forgiveness. At least she is not trying to avoid the truth, or deny any involvement.........that's alot more than could be said about numerous politicians.

gee, republican? she jumped on the bandwagon to nuke Cantrell's district and cried like a baby when it happened to her. she is as low, if not lower, than John Wiley Price

Commissioner Dickey has shown more fire and passion in the past few weeks than I ever dreamed could come from her.  Glad she called out Cantrell.  If they aren't investigating Cantrell, they should be.   He sold his soul for nothing.  Can't wait to vote against him in the primary.

she's hoping to be the next JWP; I'm voting her ass-out She should do like Laura Miller, stay home and bake cookiesshe so uninformed politically or policy And that was a half bated apology; keep that to herself

that wouldn't pass for an apology in my house. I'd be sleeping on the back porch. My friend Steve gave me the perfect apology:I'm sorry. I was wrong. I'll try not to do it again.

add that next time.
