Ethics Panel Meets Again On Currie

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland General Assembly’s ethics panel has met again to consider a Prince George’s County senator’s failure to disclose work for a grocery store chain.

The Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics met for about two hours on Tuesday. Members of the panel declined to comment when they left the meeting.

On Monday, the committee met for several hours, with Sen. Ulysses Currie, a Democrat, and his counsel present.

The panel’s meetings have not been open to the public. If the committee decides to recommend sanctions, they will become public when they are forwarded to the Senate for a vote.

Currie was acquitted of all charges in a federal bribery case last year relating to the work he did for Shoppers Food Warehouse.
