The Baksheesh Administration
Last month we explained how Governor O’Malley’s partial funding of the Thornton Plan has less to do with balancing the budget than ensuring his political base continues to receive baksheesh and the rest of the state be damned.
Today O’Malley Watch does the numbers. Under the O’Malley plan Montgomery County, Prince George’s County, Baltimore County, and Baltimore City will receive $35 million more in state ad. The rest of the state will receive $135 million less.
