The conservative blog Red Maryland has done a very detailed and stunning investigation on the finances of Prince George’s Executive Rushern Baker. If their report is proven to be true, Mr. Baker may have a lot of questions to answer.
Public documents show Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker did not answer county financial disclosure forms accurately.And Mr. Baker, a lawyer in a very public state political fight to bring an $800 million casino to National Harbor, won’t explain why. He did not respond to multiple requests to answer questions about the 2010 and 2011 forms as well as inquiries about his campaign finance disclosures and prior work experience.That Mr. Baker, whose predecessor Jack Johnson is serving time in federal prison for bribery, would not do everything in his power to clean up the image of county politics sullied by the continuing corruption scandals tied to Mr. Johnson is surprising. Most recently, news broke in May that the county spent hundreds of thousands to settle a lawsuit from a developer alleging a large bribery scheme involving county officials.To read more about the article yourself and view their supporting documents go to their site at http://redmaryland.blogspot.com/
