One of the biggest winners in Maryland Tuesday night was not technically on the ballot: the Democratic leadership in Annapolis. All four of the controversial ballot questions were about measures championed by Gov. Martin O'Malley and approved by the General Assembly, where Democrats hold the majority. And all four were affirmed by the voters. Those measures expand gambling, legalize same-sex marriage, allow in-state tuition for some illegal immigrants and create new congressional district boundaries.

Tea Party leader Del. Neil Parrott offered fresh details about the boating collision that put six people in the hospital and is threatening to end the political career of Del. Don Dwyer, who was drunkenly at the helm. Parrott said that Dwyer's boat was "struck" by another other vessel. "Don assured me that he did everything he could do to avoid the collision," Parrott wrote in an email to his colleagues in the General Assembly. "Don indicated that he had been drinking, however, at this point it is unclear whether he alcohol had anything to do with the accident," Parrott wrote.

By any standard measure, Neil Parrott's place in Maryland politics ought to be toward the very bottom. He's a freshman Republican delegate in a very blue state, without pedigree or government connections. Yet through dogged organizing and clever use of technology, this tea party leader from Hagerstown has turned a little-used provision of the Maryland Constitution into a tool capable of overturning chunks of the ruling Democrats' legislative agenda. Parrott, a University of Maryland-trained traffic engineer, developed a website that makes it much easier to collect the 56,000 valid signatures needed to petition a law to referendum in Maryland.

The Western Maryland Republican leading the effort to repeal the state's new Congressional map says he believes the signatures they collected will withstand Board of Elections. "This was a very thorough validation process," said Del. Neil Parrott, R-Washington, speaking at an Annapolis news conference. To make his point, the delegate held up a passel of signed petitions that he opted not to submit due to errors. Parrott and other Republicans have so far turned in 65,722 signatures in two batches - about 10,000 more than needed to put the question to voters on the November ballot.

A group that has already put one referendum issue on November's ballot has turned its sights to Maryland's new congressional map, announcing Tuesday that it will try to gather enough signatures to give voters a chance to throw out the redistricting plan. "The map is patently unfair," said Del. Neil C. Parrott, a Frederick County Republican who founded MDPetitions, the group that successfully petitioned Maryland's "Dream Act" to referendum. The Dream Act — a law that would allow some illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition rates at Maryland colleges and universities — would be overturned if a majority of voters cast ballots against it. The new map of congressional districts will be used in next week's state primary and in November's general election.

Conservative activists trying to repeal a state law that grants college education discounts to illegal immigrants have met a preliminary goal to keep their efforts on track, the State Board of Elections reported Tuesday. State officials validated 21,919 of the signatures the group submitted last month, well above the number needed to keep their initiative alive. The number could grow as officials continue sorting through tens of thousands more on the group's initial petition. Activists have until the end of this month to continue collecting names.

Joanne S. Parrott and Theresa M. Pierno, the two Harford County councilwomen running for the County Council presidency, spent much of their first and perhaps only debate arguing over whether they are alike or different.In their first head-to-head meeting Thursday, moderated by the League of Women Voters at John Carroll School and taped for cable television viewers, each cited her citizen-friendly voting and claimed to be the candidate for what has become the battle cry of the 1994 campaign -- "managed growth."
