Another Round Of O'Malley v. Carter
Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) and Del. Jill P. Carter (D-Baltimore) have not been on good terms for quite some time -- and this week offered fresh evidence that the relationship is not likely to take a turn for the better anytime soon.
During O'Malley's tenure as mayor of Baltimore, Carter was among the leading critics of his "no-tolerence" policing policies, accusing the mayor of ordering "mass arrests" that violated the Constitutional rights of many innocent citizens.
Carter is now running for mayor of Baltimore herself, and she's riding pretty low in the polls. She has also called on O'Malley to convene a special session of the legislature to deal with a 50 percent rate increase that recently took effect for customers of Maryland's largest electricity provider, Baltimore Gas & Electric.
O'Malley spent the afternoon Wednesay hosting an energy summit, looking at ways to mitigate such outcomes in the future. After the event wrapped up and O'Malley had finished fielding questions from reporters, he was approached by a liberal activist who asked him if he supported Carter's call for a special session.
"I don't support anything that Delegate Carter is for," O'Malley said, prompting chuckles from some of his staff but outrage from supporters of the sitting Democratic delegate.
