Currie case shows how Maryland's corrupt old boy network protects its own

March 06, 2012

Apparently it is OK for Prince George's County Sen. Ulysses Currie to accept $250,000 from the grocery store chain Shoppers Food Warehouse, and nothing really happens to him if he fails to report it on his financial disclosure form.

The FBI charged him with bribery, but the good ol' boys in Annapolis thought it was just five years of clerical oversight. This shows that we get what we deserve when we refuse to vote incompetent incumbents out of office.
