'Family friend' Angelos gives Sophocleus a loan CAMPAIGN 1994

October 29, 1994|By Staff Report

The Democratic candidate for Anne Arundel County executive, who opposes a proposed football stadium in Laurel for the Washington Redskins, has gotten a $15,000 campaign loan from the man trying to bring an NFL team to Baltimore.

Theodore J. Sophocleus says he received the loan on Sept. 9 from Orioles owner Peter G. Angelos, who is charging the candidate 6 3/4 percent interest. The loan was part of campaign finance statements filed yesterday.

"I've known Pete my whole life," Mr. Sophocleus said. "He was one of my brother's best friends. . . . We grew up together, we're family friends. He's just one of the guys from Highlandtown who made it big."
