Sen. Muse to file complaint about campaign flyers

Washington Post Editors

State Sen. Anthony Muse (D-Prince George's) plans to file a complaint with the county's elections board Friday about flyers sent to county voters showing that he is backing candidates-- including his own opponent-- that he has not endorsed in the Sept. 14 Democratic primary.

The flyers, signed by a group called Citizens for Change, were mailed to residents and were being handed out Friday in front of the Oxon Hill Library, a site for early voting, which began in Maryland Friday, according to Muse's top aide, Denise Tyler.

Muse recently endorsed former Del. Rushern Baker for the Democratic nomination for county executive. Baker is in a five-way race with County Council member Sam Dean, Sheriff Michael Jackson, Del. Gerron Levi and Henry Turner, a developer and businessman. But the flyer associates Muse with Dean and other candidates whom he has not endorsed, including his own opponent in the primary, Albert Chatmon, said Tyler, Muse's chief of staff.

"They are fraudulent," she said.

I see no evidence that the Post did anything to actually investigate this claim.

Perhaps getting a response from the group accused of misconduct would have balanced the story somewhat.

Any guess which candidate the Post has or will endorse?
