Complaints about bus are political 'spin' [Letter]

September 09, 2014

I got quite a chuckle reading "Hogan's rolling office raises eyebrows" (Sept. 7) regarding Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan's campaign bus. According to the Hogan campaign spokesman, Adam Dubitsky, the campaign pays Mr. Hogan $683.77 a month as "office rent" to use a newly-purchased bus, which is equal to what Mr. Hogan pays to fiance the bus.

Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown's campaign called Mr. Hogan's bus a metaphor for the Republican's wealth. "This opulent bus shows just how out of touch Hogan is," said Brown campaign manager Justin Schall. Mr. Brown's camp, meanwhile, has campaign toys of it's own. The Democrat purchased a Jeep for $14,000. They also rented a cargo van bearing Virginia license plates from a Maryland company for approximately $1,000 a month. Just more rhetoric coming from the Brown campaign that doesn't add up.
