Golf Games With the Governor

Last week the Maryland Democratic Party fanned the flames of scandal in its Majority Report by invoking a recent Washington Post article that further details questionable financial activities by nonprofit groups connected to Gov. Bob Ehrlich. It seems that golf games with the Governor are available for a not-so-small donation to his allies.

This is not the first article, nor the last, questioning fundraising and advocacy practices on the Governor’s team.

And the Maryland primary is getting more attention now that the presidential is still on, and Harry Sampson is one of several Democrats who’d like to make the 1st CD general into a competitive race.
