I am a registered Republican. I forget why. I think it's a vestigial toe left over from the era when Republicans were the way I liked them: Evil, but sane. In the days before they would, no lie, openly urge businesses not to hire new workers under the theory that American prosperity will be counterproductive to their political goals. So I have been paying little attention to this (still more than a year away) election that's shaping up to be a production of President Obama and the Seven Dwarfs.

Sen. Alex X. Mooney's challenger in the Nov. 5 election says his campaign is spreading misleading information about her through phone calls disguised as a survey. But Mooney's campaign says the phone calls to 300 random voters were part of a legitimate research survey. Del. Sue Hecht, D-Frederick/Washington, condemned what she characterized as a "push poll," allegedly done in late August. Phone call recipients told Hecht they were asked questions that distorted Hecht's attendance record as well as her positions on gay rights and medical use of marijuana.

What little hope Del. Christopher B. Shank and Del. Robert A. McKee held that they wouldn't have to run against each other in the Sept. 10 primary quickly faded last week with a court adviser's recommendation. Retired Court of Appeals Judge Robert L. Karwacki recommended only small changes to the once-a-decade redistricting plan that put the two Washington County Republican incumbents in the same district. Those changes could change the election district boundaries on the Eastern Shore, but won't affect Washington County, local political observers said.

Fuller and his campaign manager, the Rev. LeRoy J. Guillory, argued in a Jan. 31 hearing before the Hagers- town Board of Election Supervisors to have his name placed on the ballot, but the board ruled against him.

The House of Representatives moves fast, said Lisa Wright, U.S. Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett's press secretary for about 18 of his 20 years in Congress. Members who lost in Tuesday's election - Bartlett was one - will have two weeks to pack up their Capitol Hill offices. Complicating the departure will be a “lame-duck” session of Congress that starts Tuesday, Nov. 13. When Bartlett, a Republican, leaves office in a few months, Democrat John Delaney, who was elected on Tuesday, will step in. Delaney will be in the freshman class of representatives sworn in when the 113th Congress convenes in early January.

Ethics complaint targets Garagiola A Potomac, Md., lawyer has filed an ethics complaint against state Sen. Robert J. Garagiola for failing to list past earnings on a state financial disclosure form. Randa Fahmy Hudome said she heard a radio ad on the topic about a week ago. She filed a complaint with the Maryland General Assembly's Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics on Monday and emailed copies to reporters. John Delaney, one of Garagiola's Democratic opponents in the 6th District Congressional race, attacked Garagiola about a month ago for not reporting more than $200,000 in earnings as a lobbyist with Greenberg Traurig from 2001 to 2003.

Endorsements are hot commodities in the very competitive 6th Congressional District, but none is bigger than the one just snagged by Democrat John Delaney: former President Bill Clinton. In a statement released Monday, the former president called Delaney “a lifelong Democrat who has real life job creation experience .... His commitment to equality, economic growth and fairness will make him an effective advocate for the middle class, a strong advocate for job creation, and a trusted ally for reform.” The “lifelong Democrat” backing from Clinton might help deflect criticism of Delaney's contributions to Republican Rep. Andy Harris, who knocked off Democratic incumbent Rep. Frank Kratovil in the last election.
