Baltimore Is A Mess, Van Hollen Leads Edwards in MD, Trump Leads in NH, IA, SC
All I’ll say about Joe Flacco being out for the year is at least the Ravens are getting anything and everything that could go wrong out in a single season. Next year…Super Bowl!
On the Wikipedia page for Sheila Dixon, the former Mayor of Baltimore, it states the following:
On January 9, 2009, Dixon was indicted on twelve felony and misdemeanor counts, including perjury, theft, and misconduct. The charges stem partly from incidents in which she allegedly misappropriated gift cards intended for the poor. On December 1, 2009, the jury returned a “guilty” verdict on one misdemeanor count of fraudulent misappropriation and Dixon received probation provided she resign as mayor as part of a plea agreement, effective February 4, 2010.

Trump Still Leads GOP Nationally and in NH
Back from the Maryland Republican Convention over the weekend and as usual, despite the fun and camaraderie, nothing a real substance was accomplished as usual. Meanwhile, there are apparently still 49 members of the Maryland Republican State Central Committee who support Donald Trump for President according to the Straw Poll taken on Saturday, which was unfortunately won by Ted Cruz barely over Marco Rubio. There were Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio hospitality suites on Friday night along with a defacto Ben Carson hospitality suite. None of the other candidates had anything to speak of.
I thought I had pre-loaded an Election Night thread, but apparently I never took it out of Draft Status. Meanwhile this morning, ABC News and The Washington Post released a new primary poll that shows Republican Party primary voters are still delusional.
