CityPaper/Political Plum Shenanigans – Wait, You Mean I Gotta Live In My District? No Way! The Law (Boston vs.Blount, 1998) Says “Domiciled” Not “Permanent Abode”February 16, 2014
Judge John C. Eldridgre, Maryland Court of Special Appeals , Boston v.Blount, 1998: “The requirement is that one must be DOMICILED in the district, and domicile is not synonymous with primary place of abode.”:
Art Helton: ” “The state and federal courts are clear–you can live where you want to live.”
City Paper: “The location must simply be a permanent place to which said pol ‘intends to return'”
City Paper: “…in Maryland it has long been THE LAW OF THE LAND that a politician can for the purpose of carpet-bagging, claim residence any damn place he or she chooses, with no requirement to sleep in on said premises”
The City Paper wrongly calls Democrat Del. Mary-Dulany James the current State Senator from Dist 34. The current state Senator is Republican Nancy Jacobs. Thats what all the cloak and dagger shenanigans is all about. Jacobs is retiring, leaving an open seat—a political plum. James wants the Senate seat with no major opposition. Thats why she never challeged Jacobs. Democrat Helton challenged Jacobs twice and last time beat her in Harford County but not in West Cecil. Now the district is just a Harford district. District 35 now picks up the more conservative West Cecil County. The Dems have there best chance of taking back the Senate in Dist 34 with only a nominal Republican candidate. James has watched and waited and watched and waited for this open seat. Helton has fought and fought for the seat. The only thing in the way of James now is Helton in the Democratic primary. She is trying to beat Helton in the courts by getting the Board of Elections to redefine the residency laws because she fears she cant beat Helton in a fair fight in an election.
The Dodgy Dagger and the Md Board of Elections wrongly ignore Maryland law on the defintion of residency as it pertains to qualifying for a candidate.

DodgyDagger – Rob Stanfield Gives Harford Democrats A “Tea Party Loyalty Test” : #8. Do You Like The “Rain Tax”? #1 & #2. Are You Gonna Take Away My Stun Gun (HCC260-3) Or My Machine Gun?(SB251) #5.

Will You Support the Tea Party And Klu Klux Klans Proposal To Make English Harford Countys Official Brave New World Language #9. Are You For Increasing Taxes Just To Pay Them Damn Teachers A Cost Of Living Raise?February 16, 2014
On the righteous Republican political Dodgy Dagger blog Rob Stanfield asked Gina Kazmir, candidate for County Council District C, ten Tea Party loyalty questions. On second thought Stanfield added two more teabag “loyalty test” questions. #11. Would you increase the minimum wage in Harford? And “12. Would you legalize marijuana in Harford? Gina Kazmir bravely answered the top ten teabag quizz, pointing out that most of the questions have nothing to do with Harford County government. Stanfield quickly sent the tea party loyalty test to other Democratic candidates: Jim Thornton, Joseph Smith and Chris Boardman .
Clean Water/ Healthy Families.Org – Clean Up The Bay: Crabcakes Not “Crap Cakes” Or Crabcakes Not “Craig Cakes”February 10, 2014
Maryland Republicans are trying to protect the polluters of the Chesapeake Bay. They want to stop the clean up of the bay by stopping the pollution runoff laws. They dont talk about pollution runoff…. no they try to joke away a serious problem effecting the Chesapeake seafood by telling Maryland voters that we should repeal the “rain tax”. They tell voters that we are taxing the rain…ha ha ha ha….not the pollution runoff. Harford County County Executive David Craig is a ring leader of these political clowns. In his desperate attempt to run for Governor of Maryland he has led the charge among Republican candidates to repeal the pollution runoff tax . Thats Craigs bumpersticker. He is appealing to the extremely uninformed (stupid) voters of the extreme right—the Tea Party Know-Nothings— in an attempt to win the Republican primary. Maryland voters should tell Craig to: Keep your weed killer out of my crab cakes, keep your motor oil out of my rockfish and keep your fertilizer out of my flounder.
