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.

By the way,

Michael Vick is -not- a dog killer.
Michael Vick IS a reformed dog killer.

There's a monumental difference between the two.

That's like saying...

Robert Downey Jr is a drug addict.
No, Robert Downey Jr is a -reformed- drug addict.

Why is this so difficult to grasp? Is it because Michael Vick is black is somehow immune to forgiveness by you folks?

@ myliverhurts.
Yes it's racist. Obviously for you to make such a low blow means that you lack the necessary vocabulary to express yourself. So, I will speak your language on your level. Suck a bowl of D**cks, on Micheal Vick. Trash...

TEAM VICK!!!

It's widely known that black people are either afraid of or hate domestic animals. And if anyone doubts this...BET's Ed Gordon, guest Karen Mills-Francis made such comment.

#11 was right Michael Vick is a pig.
The REAL mayor has every right to be upset, what right did the council member have to make himself a bigshot. This could have waited and been discussed it was not a matter of life of death. The councilman is just a fame whore.

@ va reb.
You sound like a scorned ex girlfriend. He's moved on girl. Get over it. What's Vicks family got to do with this. Obviously your must not be too great, if they taught you that going on the internet and speaking such vulgarity is OK. May, I aks you to join myliverhurts for a bowl of hot D**cks and a side of STFU. PS: Virginia is such an unimportant state. Nobody cares. You should be thanking Mike Vick for bringing notice to it.

#17 , your logic is flawed beyond comprehension.Dog killer > killed dogs. Rapist > raped. Murderer > murdered. These kinds don't "rehabilitate". Drug addicts can....and afflicting pain and death on another being is completely DIFFERENT THAN SELF-HARM.
