Scrutinize O’Malley

Posted by David Keelan on Wednesday, March 22, 2006

The Baltimore Sun's "article" about Michael Steele receiving contibutions from charitable organizations that received funds from the state made me wonder about campaign contributions to Martin O'Malley in the unfolding scandle regarding Baltimore City Council President Sheila Dixon.

Dixon probe is widened

A number of names tied to the events are mentioned.

Two names in particular show up as contributors to Mayor O'Malley's campaign:

Claude Edward Hitchcock who donated $1,250 to Mr. O'Malley's campaigns


Mildred Boyer (Utech's president) who made a $4,000 contribution in June 2005.

I wonder if the Baltimore Sun will be writing about this anytime soon.

    What would they write about? Does O’Malley’s sister work for Utech, which he failed to disclose? Has O’Malley participated in hearings or votes to the benefit of Utech?

    The reader/writer misses the point about this tongue in cheek post.

    The point, Mr. Guff, is that O’Malley accepting donations from Utech is no more of a story than Steele accepting donations from charities that received funds from the State.

    One could take the Steele article and substitute O’Malley’s circumstances and have exactly the same article. Just different players

    However, the Baltimore Sun will never write that article because they would rather go after Ehrlich and Steele.

    That is called bias. Get it?

    On further thought and reading I wonder if this story just might have legs. O’Malley has three votes on the Board that approved UTECH’s dealings with the city. So yes he did participate in votes to the benefit of UTECH.

    Here is what another blogger has to say about this and one has to wonder if anyone at the Sun will look at this.

    common sense howard county
