Norris on the Stump for Ehrlich


Former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani was the main attraction last night at a rally for Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) that drew about 200 of the party faithful to a Prince George's County fire station.

But the event's master-of-ceremonies raised more eyebrows: Edward T. Norris, one of Baltimore's police commissioners under Mayor Martin O'Malley, Ehrlich's Democratic challenger.

In late 2002, Norris left Baltimore to become the state police superintendent under Ehrlich. He later served federal prison time for misusing money from a supplemental city police fund and lying on tax returns. He now hosts a popular radio show in Baltimore.

Norris told the crowd that he has lived "an interesting life, to say the least."

During the program, he and Ehrlich swapped praise for one another, with Norris calling Ehrlich "an incredible leader." Ehrlich said Norris had done great work for him while in state government.

Norris, a third-generation cop from New York, also had very kind words for Giuliani, whom he worked under prior to coming to Baltimore.
