Del. Jon S. Cardin and state Sen. Brian E. Frosh briefly shook hands Monday night. But that's where the niceties ended. In front of a packed audience at the University of Baltimore School of Law, the leading candidates for the Democratic party's nomination for attorney general got downright hostile. Frosh, of Montgomery County, accused Cardin of missing a large number votes in the General Assembly and associating with a rapper facing human trafficking charges. Cardin, of Baltimore County, accused Frosh of working against anti-child predator legislation and trying to implement an "Orwellian" bail system in which a computer decides a prisoner's freedom.

Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, plans to introduce bipartisan legislation Tuesday that would end the National Security Agency's bulk collection of U.S. telephone and email data - the surveillance program that has drawn fire from privacy advocates, civil libertarians and some lawmakers since it was revealed last year. Under a proposal developed by Ruppersberger and Rep. Mike Rogers , the Republican chairman of the intelligence committee, the government would have to rely on records kept by private telecommunications companies for information now gathered by the National Security Agency.
