ANNAPOLIS - Moments after the Maryland Senate agreed Friday afternoon to banish embattled Sen. Larry Young, a colleague leaned over to Sen. Donald F. Munson said how the situation just made him feel sick.
That comment came Sen. John W. Derr, R-Frederick/Washington, Munson said. Like Munson, a Hagerstown Republican, Derr didn't disagree with the results: Both senators voted with the majority of the historic 36-10 vote to expel Young for a variety of ethics abuses.
But even those who felt ousting Young from the Senate was the right thing to do also felt an emotional drain from an ordeal that hasn't been played out in state politics in more than 200 years, Munson said.
