Attorneys for former Anne Arundel County Executive John R. Leopold are arguing in court documents his convictions on vague charges should be overturned and that the judge had no authority to bar him from running for office. In a brief filed this month with the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, Leopold's attorneys are appealing the sentence handed down by retired Judge Dennis Sweeney, who heard the case in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. Specifically, Leopold's attorneys argue Sweeney doesn't have the authority to bar Leopold from running for elected office while he serves a five-year probation.

Jackson despite emphatic testimony from three critics in the audience, including one who stood before Gov. Parris N. Glendening and accused him of winning a stolen election.The strongly worded statements broke the decorum of the meeting but did not stop Mr. Glendening and Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein from approving the payment.

As a rule, the FTC says, organizations conducting legitimate voter registration drives either contact you in person or give you a voter registration form that you fill out yourself.

— The motto of Somerset County, still visible on its official seal, is semper eadem , Latin for "always the same. " In many ways, the Eastern Shore county 120 miles southeast of Baltimore has lived up to the slogan. Long before anyone had heard of the pioneer who took office last week, the county's origins in the American plantation system created a booming farm economy — giving rise to a rural elite that has been slow to give up power. The county that would become a hub for boatmaking in the late 19th century and seafood through the middle of the 20th was the last county in Maryland in which a lynching took place and the last to integrate its schools.

William Donald Schaefer named three new members and two alternates to the city's board of election supervisors yesterday, dumping four out of five incumbents.The list was included in the governor's "green bag" of patronage appointments traditionally presented to the state Senate in a green felt sack on the 40th day of their annual 90-day session.
