6th Dist. candidate Delaney donated $2400 to Tea Party candidate last year

By Politifreak for Daily Kos on Friday, March 16:

"Maryland's 6th Congressional District. State Sen. Rob Garagiola uncovered the fact that his chief rival for the nomination, commercial lender John Delaney, gave the maximum allowable contribution of $2400 to Republican Andy Harris last year as he sought to unseat Dem Rep. Frank Kratovil in MD-01. This was a particularly ugly thing for Delaney to do, given that Kratovil was a freshman locked in an incredibly difficult race in a very tough district in a exceptionally brutal year for Democrats—and Harris was a loud-and-proud Tea Partier, not some faux-moderate incumbent. Even worse, Delaney tried to hide the donation."

Delaney also does not live in the redrawn 6th District. This doesn't make him ineligible to run, but it's one more strike against him, in my opinion.

2. Garagiola and Delaney are among five Democrats seeking the party nomination

 

in Maryland's April 3 primary election. Just to clarify.

4. I wonder whether he's a DINO

 

or even a Democrat at all.
I had never heard of him until the Gazette listed the candidates for the primary.

6. So did the Gazette newspapers

 

which are owned by the Post.


Why on earth do we need a bankster for our representative in Congress, especially at a time when it is glaringly obvious that we need more regulations to control the greedy banking industry.
