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.
