Dallas Mayor, Councilman Squabble Over Michael Vick

2/7/2011 7:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Vick got a key to the city of Dallas this weekend -- but the Mayor of Dallas is not only washing his hands of matter ... he's a little pissed Vick got the honor.

Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway (who is actually a Councilman who can fill in for the mayor in a pinch) gave Vick the honor -- stirring a post Super Bowl controversy in Big D -- but did so without the knowledge of Mayor Tom Leppert.

Leppert says, "The action taken was not sanctioned by my office and was not an official ceremonial honor on behalf of the City of Dallas. [This was] done without my knowledge or approval."

Caraway said the gesture was more ceremonial than official, though those "keys" really don't do anything anyway.

OooooNooo!    

Just proves it really doesn't matter if you kill dogs, rape women or kill your ex-wife, if you're a famous football player all is forgiven by some in this goofy society. At least O.J. is sitting in the pen now.

So many dirty politics in Dallas, it does not surprise me.

The cops s*ck there as well, they will beat you and like it. Then again, that is everywhere.

You know, if people don't stop persecuting MV for something he's already paid for, he might as well return to doing it.

Yeah, Vick may have served his time? However, that does not mean that we need to embrace the guy just because the NFL let yet another criminal play ball.

There's many other pro football players who deserve that honor. It's a disgrace to give it to him. What a joke! Dumb criminal who lied several times in court gets caught. Now, people are supposed to look up to him as a role model. This country has no morals, all they care about is that he brings dollars into the football profession. Let's overlook his page-long police record.

CLEARLY they didn't need to consult with this "Clown Leppert" to give Mike an award. So he needs to get over himself and get over IT. Mike did what he did and paid a big price for it. Move on already!!

This man got a slap on the wrist for killing massive amounts of dogs. He starved them, whipped them and then made sure they were desperate and angry enough to prey on each other.

This man NEVER paid for the damage he did to them. It's absurd to think any city would give him a key to their city.

He's the worst human being EVER. I wish him a horrific life and death.

He sat back watching dogs mutilate and kill each other for his own personal enjoyment.

That qualifies him as a human.

Anyone who thinks this man and what he did was okay is also in the same group. Some things are unforgiveable. This was.

How is spending 23 months in prison and the loss of over $100M slap on the wrist? I'm not condoning what he did but he paid a heavy price for that.

What's the Mayor's beef? Does he not like MV?

Last I heard Michael did hit time, is genuinely remorseful, and is changing his life. What's the problem?
