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.

Democrats, who have seen their power steadily decline in recent county elections — and fielded few candidates last year — are now considered a fringe group under redistricting law. Tuesday night, the Republican-dominated County Council shut them out of the committee that will shape council districts for the next decade.
