UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III is asking state lawmakers to approve two ethics measures involving campaign contributions from developers.

The proposals come as former county executive Jack B. Johnson (pictured) and his wife face federal charges in a corruption probe. Leslie Johnson, a newly-installed county council member, and her husband were arrested in November in a case involving alleged payments from a developer.

One measure would restrict council members’ ability to accept campaign contributions from developers while they are considering legislation that would directly affect developers. The other would affect council member’s ability to become involved in development proposals.
