    Open Government in Maryland committee? With Martin O’malley as Governor thats and oxymoron! Open government Martin O’Malley that one makes me laugh!
    I wonder what back room deals were made to get appointed to that committee. Miller, Busch, all they want is your money and to fool the uneducated into re-electing them. O’Malley he has higher aspirations. Maybe by then he will be able to look straight into a camera? Tax and Spend Democrats love O’Malley!
