Why Do We Have an Ethics Commission…

or laws regarding conflicts of interest for that matter?

Seriously, what’s the point if Nat Exum can vote to exempt his employer from regulations; Mike Miller can ramrod legislation to enrich the former head of the Maryland Democratic Party; Ulysses Currie, who consults for Shoppers Food Warehouse, can sponsor a bill to transfer a liquor license from one store location to another location in space owned by major donor, while Justin Rosswho works for said donor–can vote on it as well.

One Maryland indeed!
