When the state's leading Democrats gather for a fund-raising gala Monday evening in Greenbelt, they can expect to see members of the party's most liberal wing demonstrating outside. The group Progressive Maryland will rally to urge Democratic lawmakers to vote for the income tax increase and other measures necessary to avoid the so-called Doomsday cuts that were left in the state budget for next year as a result of the General Assembly's failure to  pass those companion measures on the last night of the regular session that ended April 9. That much the group can pretty well count on. Gov. Martin O'Malley on Friday issued a call for lawmakers to reconvene in Annapolis May 14, and he and legislative leaders appear to be on the same page regarding their determination to pass the measures needed to avoid cuts of more than $500 million to programs liberals generally support.

A fund-raiser that linked some Baltimore sports celebrities to the candidacy of GOP gubernatorial hopeful Helen Delich Bentley may have been misleading to the public, but violated no election laws, the state prosecutor has concluded.Prosecutor Stephen Montanarelli, whose office investigates charges of official corruption and election law violations, notified the Bentley campaign of his findings this week.The June 20 fund-raiser at McCafferty's Restaurant in Northwest Baltimore coincided with a sports party that included appearances by former Baltimore Colt John Unitas, Baltimore Canadian Football League team owner Jim Speros, and local sportscaster Vince Bagli -- none of whom were there to support Mrs. Bentley.

Almost midnight in America ... As citizens camp out on the streets of American cities to try and express their anger and frustration at the way the country and his administration have failed them, President Obama goes on TV to trade scripted quips with the always-safe Jay Leno.

From most angles, Baltimore County executive candidate Kenneth C. Holt resembles another, more famous Republican who also rode horses, looked at ease in blue jeans, and preached lean government and free enterprise. Holt doesn't dwell on the Ronald Reagan parallel, but he's hardly averse to the idea. "I've heard it a lot," said Holt, an investments executive who raises black Angus beef cattle on a historic 120-acre estate in Kingsville. "Ronald Reagan and I have a lot of similarities.

It's almost never a good idea to compare a politician to Hitler or the devil - let alone to do so in writing. But that's what some people think Douglas B. Riley did as he tried to prod his associates into attending a business community fundraiser for the Boy Scouts of America that features Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley as speaker. Riley, a Republican who was once a member of the Baltimore County Council and ran for county executive and state Senate, figured his right-leaning friends and colleagues needed a push since they might not be politically in tune with the governor.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. said yesterday that he would encourage the all-white country club where he held a fund-raiser to integrate and that he would look at the membership policies of venues for future events. Speaking on NewsTalk on the Washington-area cable television station NewsChannel 8, Ehrlich said he agreed with Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele's call last weekend for the Elkridge Club to seek black members. The governor said Steele's initial comments -- that he didn't care about the club's policies because he doesn't play golf -- were flippant but that his later call for integration reflected the philosophy and record of the administration on issues of civil rights.
