The Eastside Democratic Organization lacks a Web site, headquarters, a formal roster of members and even set meeting dates. Yet when the Baltimore political club does meet, things happen. Influential member and longtime city Councilman Bernard C. "Jack" Young easily defeated a close ally of the mayor's recently to become council president. And Carl Stokes, the leader of an East Baltimore charter school, was appointed to Young's old seat with the group's support earlier this month.

IT WAS ONE of those awful humid summer nights in Baltimore, nearly 37 years ago. We were all sitting around the Locust Point Democratic Club, dressed down to the basic essentials to escape the beastly elements, playing a little poker, drinking some warm draft beer, cursing the fates and puffing on our cigarettes.The club was so close to the harbor you could hear the longshoremen loading the steel pipes on the Alcoa ship at Pier 9. I was 18 years old and working on the waterfront as a stevedore/checker out of ILA Locals 829 and 1429.

When it comes to mayoral races, Baltimore's 27-candidate contest can best be described as a demolition derby.Six mayoral candidates entered the race with arrest records. One was thrown in jail two weeks ago on an outstanding burglary warrant. A second is wanted by police on a theft charge. Three have filed for bankruptcy, and one is mending his campaign after falsely claiming a college degree.The front-runner? He spent the week trying to explain a pattern of personal finance woes that included repossession of his car.Why has the race to become leader of the nation's 16th-largest city attracted so many troubled candidates?

WASHINGTON -- Los Angeles gay activist and Democratic fund-raiser David Mixner has given Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey a firm message: Kerrey, whose dislike for the president is well known, may have a safe Senate seat in Nebraska, but in the unlikely event that he doesn't support Clinton in the impeachment battle, the senator's prospects for a presidential bid don't look good."

IT BEGAN 20 years ago on this page. Since then, more than 900 columns have been published under my name, most dealing with Maryland politics and government.So much has changed in those two decades, and even more has changed since I came to this newspaper and began covering local political gatherings in 1969.Maryland politics isn't what it used to be. Much of the entertainment has been removed.Back in the early 1970s, the General Assembly was populated by muldoons -- legislative denizens elected by their local political club ("the machine")

Former City Comptroller Jacqueline F. McLean's guilty plea to felony charges yesterday ends -- for now -- an unusual, meteoric career in city politics. In her own words, she is "the thief I was brought up to hate and detest." There will be no trial. All that remains is sentencing.By admitting to having hired a no-show employee, Ms. McLean did the intelligent thing. Evidence against her was overwhelming. It is doubtful that either her health -- she has been in a psychiatric hospital since an apparent suicide attempt in April -- or her family's precarious financial condition would have allowed a full-fledged trial.

The Young Republicans Club at Westminster High School has 42 members.Only one is registered to vote -- so far. But being a year too young to vote hasn't stopped club president Adam Forrester, a junior, from active participation in his party.Yesterday, Del. Nancy R. Stocksdale and school board candidate William M. Bowen Jr. spoke after school to 25 club members."This is what's going to happen on the 5th," Adam said, and popped a gray donkey balloon with a pin. At other meetings, they have played "pin the tail on the donkey," or have bashed a donkey pinata, before the serious part of the meeting.
