Cardin Apologizes. So What?

Jon Cardin, Delegate from Baltimore County, has apologized for a massive abuse of Baltimore City police resources in using the BPD marine and air unit to stage a marriage proposal gag.  So what?  So he is sorry.  Wow.  I am impressed, that a member of the House of Delegates would apologize – but only after the Maryland Gazette and the Baltimore Sun and every other news outlet in Maryland has covered the story.  Are we supposed to think that his contrite, aw shucks, Opie-like apology demonstrates a level of maturity or seriousness we should expect from a member of the House of Delegates?

I don’t think so.

If you want to be really sorry, then roll over on whoever helped you out.  Give up names. Hold everyone accountable.
