Attorney General

When you think about it, name recognition in business and politics is really a double-edged sword. If the name is golden, or even brass-plated, it can open doors and take you places. But a widely recognized name can also cause people to question you harder - or in a different way - than they might a newcomer. They might even hold your name against you. Take Jon Cardin in the campaign for Maryland attorney general. With Maryland's primary election just two weeks from now, he's enjoying a fat lead in the latest Baltimore Sun poll over his Democratic primary opponents, Brian Frosh and Aisha Braveboy.

Gov. Martin O'Malley is expected to endorse state Sen. Brian E. Frosh for the Democratic nomination for attorney general Thursday, Frosh's campaign announced. Del. Jon S. Cardin of Baltimore County, one of Frosh's two opponents in the June 24 primary, will counter with an appearance by U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin, who is expected to introduce other elected officials who will endorse his nephew at an Annapolis news conference Monday. O'Malley is scheduled to appear at a Frosh rally in Greenbelt, adding his name to a long list of Democratic leaders who are backing the veteran senator over Cardin and Del. Aisha N. Braveboy of Prince George's County.

Two well-known U.S. Congressmen threw their support behind candidates for attorney general from their home counties Monday, with Dutch Ruppersberger endorsing State Del. Jon S. Cardin and John K. Delaney backing State Sen. Brian Frosh.  Ruppersberger, a Baltimore County Democrat, is the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee. "Cyber crimes are among the next-generation of issues with which our new Attorney General will have to contend," Ruppersberger said in a statement.

A strong public school system is important, and I support politicians who believe and vote that way. That's why I am glad The Sun endorsed state Sen. Brian Frosh for Maryland attorney general ( "Frosh for attorney general," June 8). Senator Frosh went to Maryland public schools, as do his children. Throughout his 27-year legislative career, support for public education in Maryland has been one of his top priorities. Specifically, he worked to reduce tuition costs at Maryland's public colleges and universities.

CVS Caremark has agreed to pay $250,000 as part of a settlement resolving allegations that its pharmacy stores left products on shelves after they passed their sell-by dates and tossed customer records into open dumpsters, the Maryland attorney general's office said Wednesday. The office's Consumer Protection Division alleged that CVS did not have sufficient procedures to safeguard consumers' personal information when disposed and to avoid selling expired products — including baby formula, dairy products and over-the-counter drugs.

The "contract" that Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler reviewed with boys at a beach house he and other parents had rented for a graduation party stipulated no "hard liquor" was to be consumed, but that it itself was a tacit allowance of beer and wine ( "Gansler says he made 'a mistake,'" Oct. 24). Mr. Gansler and the other adults who pooled money to rent the house had the authority to close the party down. It was their money, and it would have been their legal responsibility if someone was injured had been injured as a result of alcohol consumption at the house.

To say that Edward L. Blanton Jr., the GOP candidate for state attorney general, is a refreshing return to traditional Republicanism in Maryland is the understatement of the year in this turbulent political time. For much of the 1980s -- the Reagan era -- the state's party machinery was dominated by ideologues whose philosophy reflected a curious hostility to regulation of economic forces but a busybody determination to regulate people's personal affairs by dictating their cultural tastes or telling them how many children they must have.

I wanted to respond to Lawrence S. Greenberg's letter in support of Del. Jon Cardin ( "Cardin ready to be attorney general," May 12). I have only known Mr. Cardin since 2003, as a constituent. But what I can tell you is that when I needed him, he wasn't there for me. I had an issue with the Homestead Tax Credit that I needed to discuss with him, as the attorney general was, in my opinion, intentionally misinterpreting a slightly vague law. I wanted him to introduce a bill to clarify the language so that the real property law and tax property law were consistent with each other.

Del. Jon S. Cardin, the front-runner to become Maryland's next attorney general, this morning issued a statement addressing yesterday's report in The Baltimore Sun that he missed nearly 75 percent of his committee votes during this year's General Assembly session.  Cardin initially declined to be interviewed about the issue and his campaign wouldn't say why he missed so many votes in committee - where members make critical decisions about whether...
