While the guilty verdict against former Gov. Robert Ehrlich's ex-campaign aide Paul Schurick is still fresh in people's minds, I'd like to remind readers that his conviction is not a referendum on our political persuasions ("Schurick convicted," Dec. 7).
I am not alone in saying that Mr. Schurick's attempt to disenfranchise African-American voters was disgraceful. In my view, the jury responded swiftly and reasonably.
Unfortunately, instead of restoring our confidence in the system and reminding us that his dirty campaign style and misconduct have no place in Maryland politics, many people seem to be taking out their score cards.
