Republican Larry Hogan urged state and federal investigators Thursday to probe the possible connection between large political donations to the Democratic Governors Association and the award of Maryland state contracts to donors. Hogan, the GOP nominee for governor, also called on federal investigators to widen their audit of Maryland's health exchange to examine whether state tax dollars were misspent on the faulty online insurance marketplace. He convened a news conference Thursday to allege what he called a pattern of "suspicious" donations and suggest that his opponent, Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, might be the beneficiary.

Mustangs coach Paul Cantabene said the memory of that tight matchup has not totally dissipated.

More than anything, Widener junior guard BJ Smith's college basketball career to this point is defined by impeccable timing. While most players only dream about draining a desperation shot at the buzzer to carry a team to victory, Smith, an Overlea High grad, has lived it. Not once, but twice. His most recent heroics came on the Pride's home court in Chester, Pa., on Jan. 15 when he banked home a 65-foot heave that completed an improbable last-minute rally to beat Commonwealth Conference rival Lebanon Valley, 71-70.

Junior BJ Smith ( Overlea) banked in a 65-foot shot at the buzzer, completing Widener's rally from a 16-point second-half deficit for a 71-70 Commonwealth Conference victory over visiting Lebanon Valley on Saturday. Smith made a 3-pointer from the left corner with 2.3 seconds to bring the Pride (9-6, 4-1) to within two, then Sam Diaz missed the front end of a one-and-one that could have iced the game for the Dutchmen (9-6, 1-4). Senior Jarrell Nelson grabbed the rebound and gave the ball on the right side to Smith, who made the buzzer-beater, giving Widener its first lead since 8-7 with 14:24 left in the first half.

Even though French economist Thomas Piketty has made an airtight case that we're heading toward levels of inequality not seen since the days of the 19th-century robber barons, right-wing conservatives haven't stopped lying about what's happening and what to do about it. Herewith, the four biggest right-wing lies about inequality, followed by the truth. Lie No. 1: The rich and CEOs are America's job creators. So we dare not tax them. The truth is, the middle class and poor are the job creators through their purchases of goods and services.

Forty years ago, Congress enacted sweeping limits on political campaign spending in the wake of a shocking disclosure that one man - Chicago insurance executive W. Clement Stone - had given more than $3 million for the 1972 reelection of President Richard M. Nixon. The amount seemed outlandish then, in a campaign in which Nixon waltzed to victory over his Democratic opponent, Sen. George McGovern, winning 49 states and losing only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. It was an easily predictable drubbing.

The federal indictments handed down last week against 14 more corrections officers at the Baltimore City Detention Center in a massive jail scandal reinforce questions about whether officials have yet done enough to root out corruption at the facility. The latest indictments come on top of the 13 employees charged in April when the scandal broke and suggest that the wrongdoing there was even more widespread than initially reported. What's still unclear is how far up the chain of command the rot extended and whether all those who bear any responsibility for this mess have been called to account for crimes that apparently went on for years right under their noses.

Investigators looking into alleged corruption at the Baltimore City Detention Center appear to have made a major breakthrough this week when Black Guerrilla Family prison gang leader Tavon White, the inmate accused of masterminding a drug- and contraband-smuggling ring inside the jail, agreed to name additional staffers who participated in the scheme beyond the 13 female guards already charged. Now that Mr. White is talking to prosecutors, we can hope that more indictments will follow and give a much more complete picture of the wrongdoing at the facility.
