When Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown brought up a 2003 decision by the Court of Appeals to reprimand Douglas F. Gansler for his conduct as a prosecutor during Wednesday night's Democratic gubernatorial debate, Brown's chief rival in the campaign had a bold answer. Gansler, now attorney general, said he sees the rebuke as "a badge of honor" because he had spoken out against a Montgomery County judge who told an 11-year-old sexual assault victim that she shared the blame because "it takes two to tango.

There was no visible fallout at Ravens practice Tuesday, one day after the team was reprimanded by the NFL for offseason rules violations. The Ravens were disciplined after six players complained to the players union about late meetings and two others reported being held too long on the field after practice, according to coach John Harbaugh. These infractions occurred during the team's first voluntary passing camp in the middle of May, Harbaugh said. On Monday, the league resolved the grievance by forcing the Ravens to cancel next week's practices, which were the last ones of the offseason.

NEWT GINGRICH is about to become the only speaker of the House ever to be formally reprimanded by his colleagues. This is something his fellow Republicans either have to live with or conclude that having a discredited speaker in the chair is an unacceptable impediment to the GOP agenda. They will get no help from Democrats who believe Mr. Gingrich's retention in office is their best defense against assaults on President Clinton, who begins his second term today.Mr. Gingrich's conduct in defending himself on charges of using tax-exempt money to finance his political activities has been assailed by the House ethics committee as an "intentional . . . or reckless" affront to House rules.

In 2012, the Maryland General Assembly considered legislation reauthorizing the state Real Estate Commission, including a series of amendments related to an obscure function of that agency, a fund that compensates victims of bad actions by licensed real estate professionals. Those who have suffered a loss due to fraud, theft, embezzlement or other offenses by a licensee can get compensation from a state fund, which the offending party must pay back, with interest and fees. The amendments to the bill would have reduced the maximum interest rate, provided for the elimination of fees under some circumstances and allowed for the reinstatement of the offender's a real estate license during the repayment period.

State Sen. Rob Garagiola, a Democrat from Germantown, has been sent a letter of reprimand from a state ethics committee for failing to disclose income he received as a lobbyist on state disclosure forms. The committee said in a letter it will take no further action on the issue. Questions about the 2001-2003 disclosure forms surfaced as Garagiola ran for the Democratic nomination in Maryland's 6th Congressional District this year. The issue became a frequent point of attack for his leading opponent, John Delaney, who raised the issue in campaign advertisements.

Eight state prison employees have been disciplined -- including one who was fired -- in connection with the erroneous release last week of a violent inmate serving a life sentence for attempted murder. The Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services said the employees "failed to follow well-established policy and procedures relating to the release and/or transportation of state prisoners." Officials declined to outline specific punishments but said one employee was fired, another will retire in lieu of discipline, and others were reprimanded or suspended without pay. Their positions ranged from correctional officers to ranking officers and other staff, including one employee with 30 years on the job. A manhunt was touched off Feb. 25 after 26-year-old Raymond T. Taylor, a man convicted of shooting his ex-girlfriend and her daughters execution-style in 2005, was released from the Maryland Correctional Adjustment Center in downtown Baltimore.
