A Baltimore County councilman who is running for re-election says someone broke into his Twitter account and posted a lewd photo early Thursday morning. Councilman Todd Huff offered his "sincere apologies" for the image, which he said an unknown person had posted at 2:59 a.m. Thursday by sabotaging his account. "My campaign staff and I take this very seriously," the Lutherville Republican wrote in a message on his campaign's Facebook page. "The person in the picture is clearly not me, nor is it anyone I know.

As the fall campaign season opens, Republican Anne Arundel County executive hopeful Steve Schuh has three times as much money as his Democratic rival, George Johnson, according to campaign finance reports filed this week. Schuh, a state delegate from Gibson Island, has $225,321 in cash available to spend, compared to $72,348 for Johnson, a former county sheriff from Pasadena. Schuh and Johnson are among the Maryland candidates who filed reports Tuesday detailing their fundraising and spending from June 9 through Aug. 19. Johnson has been building his campaign after getting into the county executive's race late, while Schuh has been rebuilding his finances after a hard-fought Republican primary against incumbent County Executive Laura Neuman.

At first glance, the Howard County Circuit Court race looks like a potential blowout: The sitting judges have political muscle, a professional campaign staff and cash. Their challengers are short on all three.But District Judge Lenore R. Gelfman, attorney Jonathan Scott Smith and their revamped campaign of volunteers are counting on something they hope proves more powerful -- old-fashioned retail campaigning.As incumbents Diane O. Leasure and Donna Hill Staton forgo street-level campaigning for fear of violating judicial decorum, Gelfman and Smith have been knocking on doors, waving from street corners and, increasingly, talking tough on crime -- a top issue for suburban voters.

With less than one month to go until the primary election, Anne Arundel County executive Republican candidate Steve Schuh has more than twice as much cash on hand than his rival, incumbent Laura Neuman. In campaign finance reports filed on Tuesday, Schuh reported a balance of $666,310 to Neuman's $257,311. Neuman had raised much more in the reporting period, which ran from January through May -- $372,781 to Schuh's $121,839. But Schuh began with a large cushion built up over the last four years.

Kathleen Kennedy Townsend paid her gubernatorial campaign staff almost twice as much in defeat as Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. did in victory, campaign finance records show. Townsend, whose campaign was criticized by her political mentor as one of the worst in the country, paid more than $1.5 million in salaries and other compensation during her losing Democratic effort. Ehrlich's main campaign committee paid its staff a little less than $800,000 to help him capture the State House for the GOP for the first time in 36 years.

When Democratic gubernatorial candidate Douglas F. Gansler's campaign sent out a notice of an event on Thursday, something looked wrong: The anti-bullying forum was scheduled at a Prince George's County public school during class hours — something that normally isn't allowed for a political function. But there it was in Wednesday's news release: "Democratic gubernatorial candidate Doug Gansler will lead an anti-bullying event at Walker Mill Middle School on Thursday November 21 to challenge the Middle School Students to join the 'I Choose' campaign.

Anne Arundel Republican county executive candidates Laura Neuman and Steve Schuh traded barbs in a debate this week in Annapolis. Neuman, who was appointed county executive to replace John R. Leopold last year, and Schuh, a two-term state delegate, have been duking it out in the GOP primary for months. Neuman used Monday's debate to attack Schuh for his actions as a state legislator and his campaign tactics. She mentioned multiple times that Schuh voted for the state law that requires Anne Arundel and other jurisdictions to charge a stormwater remediation fee — dubbed a "rain tax" by detractors — to pay for pollution-reduction programs.

The United Way of Central Maryland met its $41 million campaign goal for 1999 yesterday -- minutes before it was scheduled to announce the year's results. Fresh off the phone with owner Peter G. Angelos securing a last-minute, $350,000 pledge from the Baltimore Orioles, campaign chairman J. Scott Wilfong gave the news to a relieved campaign staff that rewarded him with a standing ovation. It was the first time the United Way of Central Maryland -- which covers Baltimore City and Baltimore, Carroll, Anne Arundel, Howard and Harford counties -- passed the $40 million mark, an important psychological goal, said Wilfong, president of the Maryland region of Crestar Bank.
