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


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


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.

LettersToTheDagger – Democrat Sore Loser Mike Hiob Attacks Rovall Washington For Not Being A Sore Loser, Political Bitterness Now Giving Aid And Comfort To Republican Nancy Jacobs Re-Election Bid

November 1, 2010


      Mike Hiob has been in the Teed-Off Party ever since he lost his campaign for Mayor of Aberdeen. Now he is giving support to the Tea Party in Harford County in its efforts to re-elect Nancy Jacobs to the State Senate. Last week Hiob threw another political tantrum, upset that Rovall Washington (in The  Dagger and The Aegis) would endorse a Democrat who defeated him in the primary. Thats the normal thing you do in a democracy. Hiob once again personally  attacks Helton . And he attacks Washingtons ‘integrity’ for doing the right thing. Hiobs support for Republican proposed over-developement land policies in Aberdeen are what most likely cost him his first political  defeat last year . And  Dan Riley’s support for him in the Mayors race probably cost Dan his  recent primary defeat. Now his antics threaten to damage Democrats in what could be  a close race for the state Senate.  As BSMeter comments in The Dagger blog :”Mr.Hiob, how in the hell can you consider yourself a Dem if you would prefer Jacobs over Helton?…You have no standing as a Democrat if you would work in favor of Jacobs over any Democrat (she is to the right of Attilla the Hun).”

        Who is Mike Hiob? And where is his political integrity?


DodgyDagger – Chrisopher Boardman Questions Dan Riley’s Dissing Marla Posey-Moss After Her Close Upset Democratic Primary Victory (2,525 to 2,472) – Kumbaya or Tea Party?

October 12, 2010

          “Now, I have to say that I always thought my good friend Dan Riley was a progressive Democrat…but I noticed in the article that he was calling himself a blue dog Democrat and a conservative. Dan is a very smart guy and I give him credit for a lot of things, but in this case he was a little too cute by half in order to court the right wing nut jobs.  Marla Posey-Moss came out and said what she is.  She was honest about that and Dan would have looked a little bigger if he’d come out and said he was supporting Marla’s election rather than say she would lose the seat to the Republicans. He comes accross as a sore loser from a tough loss and perhaps that is a little too much to expect.

            But I support Marla and she deserves the support of the voters and Democrats especially, and she supports a lot of things Dan supported so I don’t know why he wouldn’t support her. She will be a fine legislator if she gets to Annapolis and I hope she does.”           Christopher Boardman,  (Oct 10, 2010, The Dagger,’ Posey-Moss Secrets To Her District 34A Democratic Upset’)

Which Is Scarier? A Delaware Witch-Politician or A Fortune-Telling Aegis Journalist?

October 7, 2010


                 Allan Vought, the Republican Aegis’s chief political anaylist states in the Aegis (nov6,2010, More Cold Times In Future for Harford Democrats):

       “One close contest did materalize for one of two House of Delegates seats in District 34 where incumbent Dan Riley eventually lost. That loss may PORTEND a general election loss of one of two  remaining legislative seats the Democrats still hold in Harford County”

Portend? One Democratic progressive losing to another Democratic progressive is an omen of political misfortune for Democrats?  I think Mr. Voughts political analysis is thin gruel. Perhaps it is even a bit racist. And  surely it  is a political curse. It is an expressed wish for misfortune to befall the Harford Democrats. Perhaps Mr.Vought is a  warlock?

Sun/Record – Del. Dan Riley Offended by The Aegis/Record Calling His Hotel Tax Efforts ‘The Annual Charade’

April 26, 2010

Letter to Editor from Del. Dan Riley  ,The Record 04/23/2010

“I take offense to your assumption made in your editorial “Taxing Our Brains” in the 16 April issue of The Record. Your statement “some esteemed legislators who continue the ANNUAL CHARADE of they’re  (sp:their) working to get the (hotel) tax approved” galls me.

The hours I spent drawing up the bill, speaking with constituents, meeting with the tourist community and the hotel industry,plus the bill presentation is no charade.

My efforts are sincere in seeking a hotel tax for Harford County, the only Maryland county without one….

…This bill would actually help Harford County especially Aberdeen after the Ripkin Stadiumn debacle,in the financial recession. I am sure my opponents will use my position for a hotel tax against me in the up coming election. So be it.” Delegate Dan Riley

Defintion of charade – Charade – 1. ridiculous pretense, an absurdly false or pointless act or situation
