Maryland Democratic Candidates - It's Time to Choose


Annapolis, MD - Yesterday it was revealed that the Twitter account of Ben Jealous liked an extremely vulgar tweet that attacked our law enforcement community. 

Maryland Republican Party Chairman Dirk Haire is releasing the following statement:

"It is beyond shameful that Ben Jealous would endorse such a vulgar statement about police officers.

See below for a few of the most outrageous distortions of the governor’s record, as well as the actual facts:
