Tiffany Alston, the former Prince George's County delegate who was ousted from her House seat in 2013 after a theft conviction, is running to get her old job back. Alston, a Democrat,  filed her candidacy papers Tuesday night to seek a seat in the 24th District, just minutes before the 9 p.m. deadline for getting on the ballot. The 36-year-old former lawmaker pleaded guilty in June 2012 to misconduct in office and the theft of $800 from her delegate office account to pay expenses of her law firm.

Tiffany Alston, the former delegate from Prince George's County who was booted from the General Assembly last year, was disbarred Thursday. She consented to losing her license to practice law for reasons unrelated to receiving probation before judgment in criminal cases involving theft and misconduct. Last year, she was the subject of an indefinite suspension of her law license. According to the Court of Appeals order, she expressed her intent in April to disbarment. She was ordered to pay more than $7,500 to former clients.

Gov. Martin O'Malley has named a former Prince George's County lawmaker to take over the seat vacated by former Del. Tiffany Alston last year after a criminal conviction. The governor announced Friday that he has chosen former Del. Darren Swain, who represented Prince George's in the House from 1999 to 2003, to fill the 24th District seat. Like Alston, Swain is a Democrat. In choosing Swain, O'Malley passed over three candidates suggested by the local Democratic State Central Committee and chose a candidate backed by Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller.

Tiffany Alston, the Prince George's County delegate who was ousted from the General Assembly this year after being convicted of misconduct in office, will not be reinstated, a court ruled Wednesday. At the same time the Prince George's Circuit Court turned down Alston's plea to regain her seat, it gave Gov. Martin O'Malley a victory by ruling that the Democratic Party committee that recommended a replacement can withdraw its nomination as the governor requested. O'Malley asked the county Democratic Central Committee to rescind its recommendation of Gregory Hall after learning about the man's criminal record on a case two decades ago. "The circumstances of this case do little for the good name and reputation of our state and even less for our county," Judge C. Philip Nichols Jr. wrote in ruling that the committee can in fact do so. The judge also ruled that if the committee send the governor a new name, it is not a binding recommendation.

For hours Tuesday, Prince George's County Circuit Court Judge C. Philip Nichols listened as lawyers representing an ousted state delegate, a former drug dealer and the governor of Maryland argued over the separation of powers in government and the meaning of the word "duty. " He will weigh those arguments as he decides who - from a legal perspective - is entitled to fill the state delegate seat at least temporarily vacated by Tiffany Alston. As soon as Wednesday, Nichols will first decide whether Alston was appropriately ousted from her seat when she was convicted in October of misconduct in office, a conviction that technically vanished a month later when she paid a fine, completed community service and received what is known as a probation before judgment.

The Maryland attorney general's office advised Tuesday that Del. Tiffany Alston, convicted of misconduct in office, cannot return to the General Assembly even though a judge subsequently granted her probation before judgment. In a letter to Gov. Martin O'Malley, Attorney General Douglas M. Gansler stood behind his office's previous advice that Alston, a Prince George's County Democrat, had been automatically removed from office on Oct. 9 as a result of a plea agreement under which she waived her rights to an appeal.

If you are elected by the people and you are caught stealing anything in relation to that job you are entrusted with, you should go and lose your pension to boot! ("Alston must go," Oct. 13.) It amazes me that Del. Tiffany Alston can be so nervy to even suggest she might run again. It makes me think this woman was not raised right. For her to have such blatant gall is overwhelming! Please, citizens of Maryland, call, write, email, text or Twitter your elected officials and demand a law go on the books stating that any funny business financially involving their elected positions will be an automatic loss of their job and pension - and none of this admission of guilt or plea bargaining stuff, just out, end of story.

Another Maryland politician has broken the law and is, nonetheless, trying to hold on to elected office. Del. Tiffany Alston this week agreed to a plea deal that allowed her to avoid trial on charges that she misused money from her campaign funds to pay for her wedding and resulted in a one-year suspended sentence for an earlier conviction on charges of misconduct in office related to her theft of $800 from the General Assembly to pay expenses in...

One day after Del. Tiffany Alston was sentenced in a misconduct case, the Maryland General Assembly's lawyer says she is now suspended from the legislature without pay or benefits. State prosecutors said Alston's sentencing Tuesday automatically triggered her removal from office, but the first-term Prince George's Democrat and her attorneys disagreed. In a letter to House Speaker Michael E. Busch on Wednesday, the General Assembly's lawyer sought to clarify Alston's status. "At the moment that sentence was pronounced, the constitutional provision was triggered and Delegate Alston was suspended from her office," wrote Daniel A. Friedman, counsel to the General Assembly.
