Alston Out Says Maryland High Court

The Maryland Court of Appeals affirmed a P.G. County Circuit ruling that determined that convicted former delegate Tiffany Alston will not return to Annapolis. The governor will fill the vacancy.

The court did not offer a basis for the opinion. They wanted to get a ruling out because of the importance and immediacy of the case. Presumably a more detailed opinion will follow.

But, in sum: this mess - this utter mess - will be resolved in a way that does not make us all hate our politicians even more than we do now.
