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 will love you? Ah. My second thought is that if you will 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.
