The Mayor of Atlantic City Gave Michael Vick, a Man with a History of Legal and Financial Troubles, a Key to the City

I love our world sometimes. Tim McManus is reporting that Michael Vick will receive a key to Atlantic City. From Mayor Lorenzo Langford: [Philly Mag]

“Michael Vick is caring and compassionate enough to reach out to our city when we were at our lowest point during the immediate aftermath of Super Storm Sandy,” said Mayor Langford. “Twelve hours after a nationally televised Monday Night Football game, he was lifting the spirits of our residents confined to shelters with his generosity’ particularly our young people.

“And now, here he is again, helping us to spread the message that Atlantic City is open for business and ready for the summer season, all while continuing to encourage our youth to make positive contributions to the community.”

A few years ago, Vick was given a key to, of all places, Dallas. He accepted it, but the mayor quickly backtracked and said that Vick was given the key without his knowledge. These keys are solely symbolic, of course, and, sadly, they wouldn’t even open a good chastity belt. But, FOX Editor Kyle Carmean may have put it best regarding Vick being given the key to Atlantic City: “Khalif Wyatt had the ultimate key to AC.” That he did, Kyle. That he did.

  1. Well I mean if ANY city is going to give that to him….AC seems like a good fit.

  2. Granted the key to a city is a symbolic act and usually one done for publicity but why not give the key to someone or some agency who was a tad more instrumental & deserving in wake of sandy, ie police, fire, rescue units, etc. I don’t recall Vick on a raft rescuing people.

  3. Of course he has a key to the dog fighting capital of the east coast. Well done Mayor of AC

  4. Langford is black, something of a douchebag I’ve heard, and, if memory serves, got into trouble with Chris Christie for not evacuating residents before Sandy turned into a monster. So, it doesn’t surprise me that one cretin reached out to another.

    1. Yes you are aright langford is a egomaniac Not a fan of Christie either two of a kind.. and mix in M Vick and we have the trifecta of egos and ignorance.

  5. Excuse you me, but michael vick is the classiest guy in town. I’d huff his wangalangading dong!

  6. Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
    Nonetheless, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back

  7. All of you need to stop being a bunch of fucking haters and worry about yourselves instead of what everyone else and their mothers are/aren’t doing. The man’s done nothing but the right that (to our knowledge) since coming out of incarceration, leave him the hell alone.
