Ehrlich aide wants Frosh to quit panel

July 30, 2005|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s chief legal counsel demanded Sen. Brian E. Frosh resign from a panel investigating administration personnel practices, accusing the Montgomery County Democrat of misstatements and partisan motivations.

Jervis S. Finney's letter yesterday was the third in a verbal tussle over a legislative investigation into whether the Ehrlich administration improperly fired mid-level state employees.

Frosh said he would not resign, adding that Finney's accusations made no sense.

The back-and-forth began with a letter from Finney to Frosh dated July 21 in which the counsel accused the senator of attacking Ehrlich's integrity.

Legislators on the investigatory committee said they will likely begin hearings next month.
