The next time someone tells you that a life sentence is enough, consider how easily prisoners in Maryland seem to escape under the O'Malley administration. This is the same administration currently subverting and violating the Maryland Constitution by not enforcing the existing sentencing laws of the state. Today's escapee was serving a life sentence - not for murder, however. But the danger is obvious. If this life sentence escapee could get out so easily, what is to stop any criminal serving a life sentence? Democrats in Maryland prove again: they are soft on crime, hard on the wallet.
House of Delegates Chief Clerk Mary Monahan was located by authorities in Tampa, Florida, and will finally be deposed. New evidence has surfaced regarding unconstitutional actions by the Democratic leadership during the 2007 Special Session, and Ms. Monahan's testimony is believed to be critical to the case. A state Appeals board rejected the attempt of Attorney General Douglas Gansler to prevent Monahan's potentially devastating deposition.
It is quite amazing that we've heard of no progress in the prosecution of polluters by Mr. Gansler's office, but he has been working overtime to thwart an attempt to investigate potentially illegal actions by his own Democratic legislators.
Today's Washington Post reports that a property tax break that was once automatically calculated is now left for the homeowner to manually apply for. This is a clear attempt, in the tradition of the worst scam artists, to fool senior citizens and anyone else who might not understand this new - and completely unnecessary - scheme. The county government will do anything to get the most money out of the most vulnerable taxpayers to fund its tax-and-spend, far-left agenda. Remember, no low is too low for these characters. It's outrageous.
