SILLY STUFF! A JUDGE CAN’T ORDER MARYLAND GOVERNOR O’MALLEY TO APPOINT SOMEONE!
Fox News - about 4 years
Perhaps the Governor wants to appoint someone without a criminal record for drugs and a gun? But in any event, the decision to appoint is the Governor’s and not a judges decision or a nominating committee. —– Judge asked to order O’Malley to appoint Hall to Alston’s seat The Associated Press UPPER MARLBORO, Md. — An attorney has asked a Prince George’s County judge to order Gov. Martin O’Malley to appoint Greg Hall to a vacant seat in the House of Delegates.   Hall’s attorney Walter Green said in court Tuesday that the governor was required to appoint Hall within 15 days after the county’s Democratic Central Committee nominated him to fill the seat Nov. 7. O’Malley has asked the panel to withdraw Hall’s name. Some have opposed the nomination because of drug and gun charges Hall faced about 20 years ago.   Matt Fader, an attorney representing O’Malley, is scheduled to respond in court Tuesday afternoon.

No honor among thieves or corrupt politicians
blank - over 4 years
Our view: If convicted officeholders won't resign on their own, voters should make them This week, Del. Tiffany Alston ofPrince George's Countywas convicted of stealing $800 from the General Assembly to pay an aide in her private law firm. The offense is a misdemeanor, but it is directly related to her duties in office — in fact, she was also convicted of official misconduct — and as such falls under a provision of the Maryland constitution that triggers automatic suspension from the General Assembly. Nonetheless, Ms. Alston stands to be a pivotal figure in the legislature next month if Gov.Martin O'Malleycalls a special session to consider the expansion of gambling. The key issue is whether to allow a casino in Prince George's County, and as a member of that delegation (not to mention someone who has shown a flair for the dramatic), her vote could be crucial one way or the other.
