The head of the union representing teachers and support staff in the Howard County school system has removed herself from a school board candidate's campaign committee. Ann DeLacy, president of the Howard County Education Association, said last week that she will no longer serve on the campaign committee for Brian Meshkin, an executive with a bioscience company. Her organization is scheduled to interview candidates to decide endorsements, which will be announced next month. "I don't want to give the perception that the HCEA is biased against any other candidate," DeLacy said.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan jumped out to a massive - but almost certainly temporary - lead in cash in hand over Democratic rival Anthony G. Brown, the Hogan campaign reported Tuesday night. Hogan's better than 3-1 advantage - $2.4 million to Brown's $760,000 - was based largely on a July 9 lump sum payment of $2.6 million from the state's public financing fund after the June 24 primary. However, Hogan's fund-raising for his general election campaign is essentially frozen, while Brown can continue to raise money through the Nov. 4 election.

I was interested to read that a campaign slate account formed by Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has directed the majority of its funds to the campaign committee of County Councilman John Olszewski Sr. - even though the Dundalk Democrat is not running for office ( "Kamenetz slate transfers $90,000 to committee for retiring Dundalk councilman," May 31). The story says this was a move to use the money to support candidates of his choosing, meaning Mr. Olszewski, in a variety of election races.

WASHINGTON - After leading his party to a gain of at least 19 seats in the House, Rep. Chris Van Hollen has agreed to another two-year term as chairman of the committee that works to elect more Democrats to the chamber. The challenge now confronting the Montgomery County Democrat is holding on to all the seats his party picked up in 2006 and 2008. Democrats rode public anger about the war in Iraq, the financial crisis and President Bush to an 81-seat majority over the past two elections, but many won in Republican districts that will likely prove difficult to defend.

YOU COULD call it BobPAC.Well, technically, not. The Bob Ehrlich for Maryland Committee actually will not be a political action committee once it is formed, probably later this week.But it sure will function as one.It seems Rep. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., a Republican from Maryland's 2nd District, is expanding his horizons by starting a state continuing campaign committee, instead of limiting himself to just the federal level.The congressman would appear to be casting an eye to the future, when he may file for a statewide office, like, say, governor.

WASHINGTON - The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee recently discovered that dozens of contribution checks - some for as much as $25,000 - were diverted from its coffers to a private bank account, officials said yesterday. The apparent theft from the committee, which raises funds to help elect Democratic senators, totaled about $350,000 and is under investigation by the FBI and the U.S. attorney's office here. All but $10,000 has been recovered. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee uncovered the missing money in time to get it back and use it in the November elections, said spokesman Brad Woodhouse.

A slate campaign account formed by Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has directed the majority of its funds to the campaign committee of longtime County Councilman John Olszewski Sr. - even though the Dundalk Democrat is not running for office. Campaign finance records released this week show the slate, A Better Baltimore County, transferred $90,000 to Olszewski's campaign committee in January, a move that gives Olszewski discretion to use the money to support candidates of his choosing in a variety of election races.

Corrigan's criminal case involving the theft of 70 signs is long over and the Maryland Live casino at Arundel Mills opened last June. But the legal dispute is very much alive. Corrigan is in an Anne Arundel County courtroom this week fending off a lawsuit from Jobs & Revenue for Anne Arundel County, a campaign committee supported by the Cordish Cos., Arundel Mills and others.

Prosecutors want the jury deciding the fate of political consultant Julius Henson to focus on one piece of evidence: the robocall he orchestrated on Election Day 2010 that told Democrats in Baltimore and Prince George's County to "relax" and stay home. That call — which prosecutors say Republican former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s campaign used in an attempt to suppress black votes — is the "primary evidence in the case," said Maryland State Prosecutor Emmet C. Davitt during opening statements Tuesday.

State Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has taken a strong lead among prospective Democratic candidates for governor in 2014 in terms of money in the bank, but his lead narrows when his fundraising last year is compared with that of three possible rivals. In a report filed Tuesday, the deadline for filing state campaign finance reports for activity during 2011, Gansler reports having almost $4.1 million on hand. That puts him far ahead of three others who are widely expected to run in the Democratic primary to succeed Gov. Martin O'Malley, who is prevented by term limits from running again.
