WASHINGTON -- The campaign manager for Rep. Albert R. Wynn has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission alleging fundraising improprieties by Donna Edwards, Wynn's chief rival in next month's Democratic primary. The Wynn campaign handed reporters a 34-count complaint yesterday alleging illegal collaboration between the Prince George's activist and several of the organizations supporting her in the 4th District contest. In a statement, Edwards dismissed the complaint as "a desperate 11th-hour attempt" by Wynn "to deflect from the fact that groups representing the core of the Democratic party and the issues it stands for ... have decided that they want to fire him and are supporting me."

WASHINGTON -- Rep. Albert R. Wynn, a moderate Democrat from Prince George's County who survived a strong challenge from a liberal primary opponent in the fall, is co-sponsoring a measure to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. Wynn became the third co-sponsor of the resolution introduced last month by Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat who is running for president on an antiwar platform. In his proposed articles of impeachment, Kucinich says Cheney intentionally manipulated intelligence to deceive Congress and the American people about suspected weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and a relationship between al-Qaida and the government of Saddam Hussein.

Rep. Albert R. Wynn, who is leaving Congress at the end of May to become a lobbyist, has resigned from the powerful House Energy and Commerce Committee. Ethics watchdogs had called on the Prince George's County Democrat to step down from the committee for the remainder of his House tenure, citing the potential for conflicts of interest involving clients of Dickstein Shapiro LLP, the Washington lobbying firm he is to join in May. In a statement, Wynn said he believed he had complied with "both the letter and the spirit" of the congressional ethics laws, but would resign from the committee to avoid becoming a "distraction."

Veteran Rep. Albert R. Wynn appeared to have prevailed over challenger Donna Edwards in a fiercely contested 4th Congressional District Democratic primary after the last ballots were counted yesterday. Seven-term incumbent Wynn edged Edwards by more than 2,000 votes, according to unofficial results. Montgomery County elections officials were the last to record their tally of provisional ballots yesterday, 11 days after a primary election fraught with glitches. Those results showed Edwards winning in Montgomery County, with 15,851 votes to Wynn's 9,129.

ALBERT R. Wynn isn't a mover and shaker in Congress and probably never will be. He spends most of his time and energy serving Prince George's County. He's a pothole politician. The 4th District congressman, fond of sports analogies, says he has "an all-court game," but his focus and his effectiveness clearly are at the constituent level. As he nears the end of his fourth term, it's time for Mr. Wynn, who is 49, to step forward before he is permanently typecast as a local hero and national nobody -- unless he's content with that role.
