GennGlass, The Dagger, Dec 13,2010 -“Toward the end of the campaign, they (McDonough and Pallaria) DECIDED to help me raise some money and Rick gave me a lot of advice…I can call him (Impallaria) up and talk to him for whatever I need”

The Top 10 Dumbest Moments in Harford County Politics In 2010 – #4. – Patrick”Shady” McGrady’s Desperate Last Minute Political Ad Blitz of Lies, Deceit and Fear Mongering

December 26, 2010

TooMuchTooLittleTooLate

Patrick McGrady, the Right-Wing,Libertarian,Tea Party  Republican candidate for the House of Delegate in District 34A,was the “chosen one” for the Ehrlich/Jacobs Stalwarts. The Ehrlich simplistic slogan, “More Jobs, Less Taxes” became McGrady’s slogan. His “window of opportunity” opened with the primary election defeat of Democrat Dan Riley by challenger  Marla Posey-Moss  and it opened further when “Grisley” Dan agrreed with his “Republican friends” that Posey-Moss could not win. When McGrady’s late polls showed him coming up short he paniced and went negative with an unfocused  political ad blitz of  lies and fear mongering.

The Top 10 Dumbest Moments In Harford County Politics in 2010 -#6. Democratic Sore Loser Mike Hiob Attacked State Senate Candidate Rovall Washington For Not Being A Sore Loser

December 25, 2010

DodgyDagger

After losing his Democratic primary election for State Senate to Arthur Helton, Rovall Washington in a letter to The Dagger and to his own website endorsed Helton in the general election. Mike Hiob, still upset over his defeat in the Mayorality  election in Aberdeen, attacked Washington for his endorsemnent, thus aiding and abetting the eventual Republican victory of Nancy Jacobs. In the same primary election Dan Riley lost his House of Delegates seat to challenger Marla Posey-Moss . Dan Riley  upset over his surprising defeat  claimed that he was a “conservative blue-dog Democrat” despite a voting record as a progressive. Riley also stated he feared Posey-Moss could not win the general election. Riley stated ,”This consensus is shared by many of my Republican friends in that they now have a good chance of winning my seat.” Riley would go on to support his “Republican friends” “shared consensus” by not endorsing Posey-Moss in the general election thus aiding and abetting the eventual  Republican victory of Glenn Glass.

Top 10 Dumbest Moments In Harford County Politics 2010/ #10 – Harford League of Women Voters Helps To Dumb-Down Harford Voters

December 22, 2010

#10.  The Harford League of Womens  Voters  failed spectacularly this year in their voter services. They held their normal candidate forum for the County government candidates, but they forgot to hold a candidates forum for State government candidates. This year the Harford LWV decided it was not important to hold a candidates night at the college for political candidates running for the State Senate and the House of Delegates. This helped the re-election of all incumbents  and assisted in the election of the Unknown Candidate,  Glenn Glass. The Baltimore Sun pointed out four years ago that Mr. Glass has red hair, owns a blue truck and drives a yellow bus. But the 2006 Candidates Forum exposed  Mr. Glass as inadequate and unsuitable for public office and he lost. This year, because there was no candidates forum, his qualifications were not totally exposed to public scrutiny  and he won. And the qualifications of his political opponents both Republican and Democratic were not allowed to be totally examined.
