Incumbent Running Scared: South Harford Republican Know-Nothing Del. Glenn Glass Opens His 2014 Campaign With Early Residential Lawn Sign In Aberdeen on W. Bel Air Avenue, Signs May Violate Aberdeen Residential Political Sign LawsDecember 1, 2013
Republican Reactionary/KnowNothing Del Glenn Glass is running scared as an incumbent. Glass is usually found wandering Route 40 in his new truck waving at traffick years before an election. But Glass’s three years in Annapolis displayed only incompetence as he linked up his legislative voting habits with the Tea Party RightWing extremists McDonough-Impallliaria from Baltimore County. His unusually early residential lawn sign here on W.Bel Air Ave adds a McDonough sign opposing stormwater runoff fee . Glass has tried for three years to exploit the emotional bigotry of voters in order to remain in office by opposing marriage equality and immigrant college tuition (the Dream Act). Now he will try to win reelection by opposing environmental reform to save the Chesapeaake Bay. This is Glass’s last hurrah. The Glass is empty. There’s no there, there. South Harford voters wont make the same mistake again.

Fact-Checking the Tea Baggers: Four Pinocchios And A Pants On Fire Citation For Republican Del. Glenn Glass’s Claim That “More Than 80% Of The People Are Against The Dream Act…”August 22, 2011
GallupPoll/DreamActThere are no available facts to support the claim that Tea Party Republican Del. Glen Glass (Dist.34A) made in the Dodgy Dagger On August 10th, 2011 that “More than 80% of the people are against the Dream Act…”. Ryan Burbey asked Mr.Glass twice in the Dagger where he got his numbers from. Del. Glass has not responded . Apparently he made them up. All national polls suggest that a slight majority support such a bill or something like it (Rassmussen 52% and Gallup 54%). Mr Burbey suggests Del. Glass’s claim is “balderdash” and suggest Del. Glass’s words can not be trusted if he confuses facts with his opinion. We suggest he is lying and award him four pinocchios and a pants on fire citation.
The MBRG (Maryland Business for Right-Wing Government) is often defined as “A State business advocacy group with a bipartisan mission.” That doesnt quite describe MBRG. They are actually a very Libertarian Republican business group that is essentially anti-worker protection , anti-consumer protection and anti-environmental protection. Every year they rate Maryland state legislators based on a dozen or more legislative bills, and every year the far-right Republicans get 100% ratings and the progressive Democrats get zero or near zero ratings. Its a sophisticated political joke.
This year Harfords Sen. Nancy Jacobs (R-Dist34) even brags about her ridiculous annual MBRG rating of 100% by e-mailing it to the Dodgy Dagger . It’s as if she’s jumping up any down yelling “I voted against worker, consumer and environmental protection! Yahoo!.” Of course Sen. Jacobs doesn’t elaborate on how she voted to get her 100% score. And of course the Dodgy Dagger and the Aegis/Sun don’t elaborate or examine the matter . Knowlege is dangerous. The Suzanne Collins public relations job just tells us she got a 100%. Wow! Sounds cool! A good indication of how Jacobs got the high economic-libertarian score is the annual Maryland League of Conservation Voters (MLCV) legislative scorecard where once again she has made the top ten worst enviornmental legislators in Annapolis with a 20% score. [Religious right/Know Nothing Del. Glenn Glass (R-Dist34B) and Right-Wing Tea Party Del. Rick Impalliria (R-Dist.7) also representing Harford joined her in the Top 10 Worst circle . ]
Another indication of what the MBRG score really means, is to compare her voting record with the the legislation advocated by the Maryland Public Interest Group (MaryPIRG) ,which works for environmental, energy, consumer,tax, and open government reform. MaryPirg worked for one bill this year that seemed above suspicion by most observers, the Job Application Fairness Act,SB 132. The bill makes it illegal as of July 1, 2011 for most businesses to use credit information as part of the job application procedure in Maryland. Sounds like a good idea for the average citizen. But MBRG was against it. And Jacobs along with all Harford County Republicans voted against it. The Republicans and the MBRG seem to be saying, to hell with the fairness rights of Maryland citizens seeking employment.Republicans making the hard times, even harder.
The MBRG’s annual Roll-Call scorecard is a libertarian-Republican joke on the average voter. Its used by Republicans to raise corporate money for re-election while not bragging too much about the specifics that might offend even some Republicans. And the annual lack of analysis of MBRGs scorecard scam from the local and state media keeps the average voter in the dark about what its really all about. So, it goes.
DodgyDagger/Common Cents – Question: How Could The Majority In District 34 Put (Glenn Glass) In Office? [06:24:11] Answer: Glass Won With A Plularity of 25.27%…He Got One Fourth Of The Vote!…Though, Every Time He Opens His Mouth He Loses Votes. In Four Years He Should Be The Most Unpopular “True Politician*”In Harford!June 26, 2011
It doesn’t take a majority to win in District 34. Mary-Dulany James won first place with 29.22% of the vote. Glenn Glass came in second with 25.27%. 40,000 votes and Glenn Glass won with 10,931 votes. It was a four-way race for two positions. Glass won with name recognition…he’s been standing on the side of road with his signs for five years begging for the job. No media outlet defined any of the four candidates in any significant way. The Sun doesn’t care anymore about local politics. (Five years ago The Sun did a superficial piece of journalism on Glass that informed us that he had red hair, owned a blue truck, and drove a yellow bus.) The Aegis never did care. And the Harford League of Women Voters for the first time in recent history held no public forum to expose the State office candidates to public scrutiny .
Glenn Glass is a political anomally in Dist 34A. But essentially he is “political fungi”. He thrives in the political information darkness. And he will expire in the light of public scrutiny. His first campaign fizzled in 2006 after his incompetence was exposed at the LWV Public Forum at HCC. And his incompetent voting habits in Annapolis and his uninformed public words will expose him everyday for the next three or four years. Glass is is a temporary deviation or discrepancy from the norm. An anomally.
*True Politician – A person primarily interested in political office for selfish or other narrow usually short-sighted reasons. A scheemer, an intriguer who tries to gain advantage in an organization in sly or underhanded ways. A scheeming opportunist. A chancer.
The Republican Aegis reports that newly elected State Delegate Glenn Glass says he has hired two aides to help him in Annapolis. Glass states “I know most legislators have one aide, but I decided to have two because three brains are better than one.”
The Dumbest Moment in Harford County Politics In 2010 – #1. The Election of The Know Nothing Religious-Right Republican Glenn GlassDecember 27, 2010
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”
Adam Obest, The Dagger, Dec 13, 2010 (Glenn Glass assistant,”the military man who worked for Huckabee) – “To everybody else who just thinks we won’t make a difference in Annapolis and think we are not qualified; all great leaders and game changers always get criticized until history vindicates them. FYI, I am the ‘military man who worked for Huckabee’ and I LOOK FORWARD TO MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN ANNAPOLIS and really showing how much we care about the people and their problems and truly just want to be the common mans voice”
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 MongeringDecember 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.
W.T.F.: (The Dagger, Dec.16,2010,639pm, Getting Your Money’s Worth) : Adam Obest:Well…I find it interesting that the first word you use to describe Glenn Glass is “common”! (Maybe so)! Next is “middle class”. Have you seen where Glenn lives? Apparently the “bar” has been lowered for the “middle class” (enough said). And yes…”The Beverley Hillbillies” was a funny and successful SITCOM (but I wouldn’t want “Jethro” representing me at ANY level of government) Would you?
The Glass Is Half Empty: Xenephobic ,Anti-Immigrant Fanatic Dist 7 Republican Rick Impallaria Controls New ‘Wacky’ Dist 34A Repub ‘Sign Boy’ Delegate Glenn GlassDecember 14, 2010
Glenn Glass,The Dagger, Dec. 13, 2010” Toward the end of the campaign, they [ McDonough and Impallaria] DECIDED to help me raise some money and Rick gave me a lot of advice…I can call him (Rick Impallaria) up and talk to him for whatever I need”,
Bought And Paid For ,The Dagger, Dec.15,2010 6:47pm : “Glenn Glasss may not be a politician, but he has already sold out to Del. Impallaria. Check the campaign finance record. So he wont’t be making his own decisions. Mr Glass has specificly stated on numerous occassions that the only issue he cares about is Pro-Life. The rest is being force fed to him by Impallaria.”
Too Much,Too Little, Too Late – McGrady Internal Polls Force Desperate Last Minute UnFocused Political Ad Blitz of Lies, Deception And Fear MongeringOctober 31, 2010
Patrick McGrady, the typical Right Wing, Libertarian ,Tea Party Republican. For six months he parrots Bob Ehrlichs simplistic slogan ‘More Jobs,Less Taxes’. Then in the last week before the Election his internal polls don’t look good. So he desperately sends out eight or more different political mailers in the last three days – an unfocused political blitz of lies, deception and fear mongering.
One of the three mailers on Saturday attacks Democrats Mary-Dulany James, Marla Posey-Moss and even McGrady’s co-conspirator Republican Glenn Glass. The attack is basicly the lie that Democrats equal higher taxes. No facts, just malarky. The second Saturday mailer just attacks the Democrats, James and Posey-Moss. This one repeats the the ‘higher taxes’ fear-mongering lies, but this time its written in one inch letters on the back of the mailer. Not only does McGrady think Dist 34 voters are stupid, he thinks their blind.
The third mailer McGrady attacks just Marla Posey-Moss. The attack now changes. Posey-Moss is a “progressive”. Its written in one inch letters again on the front and back. McGrady is an extreme right-wing libertarian Tea-Party Republican and he thinks that Dist 34 voters are against “progress” and are very blind.
So who is McGrady running against? Everyone? Any Democrat? Or just one “progressive” Democrat? And what is he running against? Taxes or Progress? If McGrady wanted to run a successful lying Republican campaign he should have patterned himself after the disgraced Chuck Boutin campaign eight years ago.
l. Boutin didn’t run his campaign against everybody. He picked one target (Dan Riley) and made up lies just about him
2. And Boutin didnt just lie with mailers. He lied with newspaper ads. He lied with radio ads. And he lied with tv ads.
3. And finally, Boutin didn’t just lie for the last three or four days. He lied early and late. He lied for weeks on end. He lied during the whole campaign. He lied so much for so long and in so many media outlets that he fooled enough voters to win.
McGrady’s campaign failed to focus, focus, focus. Too many targets, too little media, too little time. Too Much, Too little, Too late.
