Judicial Watch asks for ethics investigation of Maryland Governor O’Malley

In its end-of-the-week summary yesterday, Judicial Watch tells us that they have asked for an ethics investigation of Martin O’Malley because he used his official state letterhead for campaign purposes.  Judicial Watch contends this is against the law in Maryland.

Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton begins (hat tip: Cathy):

If you’ve been reading this space over the last few months, you know that Judicial Watch is a leader in rooting out corruption in the neighboring state of Maryland. We waged a successful battle on behalf of our client, MDPetitions.com, to put taxpayer funded tuition breaks for illegal aliens on the ballot in 2012 after illegal alien special interests tried to silence the voters on the matter.

And after Maryland Governor O’Malley signed off on a twisted and “comical” (to use the Washington Post description) gerrymandered congressional district plan, we successfully fought alongside MDPetitions.com to put the map on the ballot as well.

Well, we’re at it again in the “Old Line State,” this time focusing on a charge of corruption within the Governor’s office. According to a Judicial Watch investigation, it appears Governor O’Malley improperly used official office resources for personal and political purposes, which is a big “no-no” according to state law. On September 24, 2012, we sent a letter to the Chairman of the Maryland State Ethics Commission reviewing the evidence against the Maryland Governor and asking for an investigation.

Read it all by scrolling down to the third and last item in the weekly summary, here.

By the way, while you are there, read some of the other news for the week.  The story about the security costs for Malia Obama’s spring break trip to Mexico is pretty juicy.
