Why would anyone in their right mind elect someone who decieves so much?
The six Trailways motorcoaches draped in Ehrlich and Steele campaign banners rumbled down Interstate 95 just before dawn on Election Day.
On board, 300 mostly poor African Americans from Philadelphia ate doughnuts, sipped coffee and prepared to spend the day at the Maryland polls. After an early morning greeting from Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr.'s wife, Kendel, they would fan out in white vans across Prince George's County and inner-city Baltimore, armed with thousands of fliers that appeared to be designed to trick black Democrats into voting for the two Republican candidates.
Republican leaders have defended the Election Day episode as an accepted element of bare-knuckle politics.
"Bare knuckle politics"? Seriously, it should make everyone nervous when someone trying to gain power stoops to this level.
