About the Writers: Aaron C. Davis
Aaron Davis covers Maryland government and politics for The Washington Post in Annapolis. He previously covered crime and justice for The Post in Prince George's County. There, he broke news of the jailhouse death of alleged cop-killer Ronnie White and uncovered a federal corruption probe into whether county and D.C. police took money to protect a high-stakes gambling ring run by drug dealers. Prior to joining The Post, Davis covered Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and California government for The Associated Press. His reporting revealed Gov. Schwarzenegger awarded friends and allies with lucrative state posts, and that bureaucratic bungling slowed the state's efforts in fighting wildfires, prompting reforms. While working for the San Jose Mercury News and Knight Ridder Newspapers, he reported from Europe, India and the Middle East. Following Hurricane Katrina, he exposed waste in federal roofing contracts in New Orleans. Covering San Jose City Hall, his stories uncovered collusion in city contracting, and led to the indictment of the city's mayor. He has also reported for Florida Today and USA Today.
