O'Malley "too cute" for Jessamy
Patricia Jessamy, the top prosecutor in Baltimore, and Martin O'Malley, the city's mayor, have not had the most cozy of relationships for some time. More evidence of that came this morning, at a news conference in Baltimore where Jessamy stood beside Montgomery County Executive Douglas M. Duncan, O'Malley's Democratic rival for governor, as he unveiled his crime plan.
"Cute and charismatic are qualities I look for in an actor or a pop star, not qualities I look for in my governor," Jessamy (D) said in a not-so-thinly veiled poke at the mayor, who fronts an Irish rock band.
Later in the day, O'Malley visited Duncan's home territory to pick up the endorsement of Rockville Mayor Larry Giammo, who occupies an office formerly held by Duncan.
Giammo, a registered independent, said he voted for Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr (R) in 2002 but came to an "easy decision" that O'Malley would be the best choice for governor this year.
