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.

Everyone get a life. He did his time, we are talking about dogs/animals not people. I know some may be upset with my comment/opinion but we need to seperate what/who is important. He paid his debt. Leave the man alone, go to church and pray for someone and if this really upset you that much, pray for yourself b/c you definitely have issues. Do volunteer work, pray, get a life but in the name of GOD leave this man alone. Mr. Vick please don't let these few ignorant comments upset, you have more for you than against you, we all have said and done things wrong, no has the right to judge, so many love you and may GOD continue to bless you. Mr. Vicks just pray for the haters, apparently they have no life.
