Senator Currie Censure

A Maryland state senator who says he has read a report by the Maryland General Assembly's Joint Ethics Committee says the panel is recommending that Sen. Ulysses Currie be censured for failing to disclose more than $245,000 in payments from a grocery store chain.

Two thoughts. First, Mr./Ms. Leaking Senator, why exactly are you leaking this? Oh, the reporter who got the information is going to love you? Ah. My second thought is that if you are going to grab $245,000 you really should not be taking in the first place, a censure is not exactly breaking your heart. But if the voters reelect Sen. Currie, they deserve her.
