The Nitty-Gritty: Southern Maryland Voters Restless as Officials Dumped from Office

McKay’s genius move of producing whatever enticement worked to motivate Del Johnny Wood to support him in the GOP primary hopefully was transacted in full as McKay simply came in third behind both Morgan and Barthelme, who was making his first run for office. Perhaps Wood will soon be seen behind the meat counter at Charlotte Hall in a gravy job. But the big surprise of Wood endorsing McKay at a fundraiser likely gave Republicans a good view of Good Old Boy Democrats simply switching to the GOP to continue to run their game.

Letter: Now we know why Cindy Jones would assist the campaign of a liberal judge — she sold her endorsement

What we didn’t know then was why Cindy Jones would help a liberal Judge appointed by a liberal Governor, when she claims to be a conservative. Now we can piece together the full nature of the corruption. Cindy Jones sold her endorsement to Judge Densford and her vote to land developers (you may recall that last month she changed her vote on the issue of public sewer in Charlotte Hall and Mechanicsville). The real question that we must ask is if she sold her endorsement in support of our liberal Governor’s political appointee and she sold her vote as county commissioner to land developers then what will she do if she does win the State Senate seat?

Charlie Hall: Thank God for this Country Boy – The ‘Whip’ of the Dorsey Machine

What many of them had in common was adherence to a political tradition in the Seventh District, often called “Dorsey-land” due to the tribe in local politics named for the late Judge Phillip H. Dorsey, and later led by his son, long-time St. Mary’s County States Attorney Walter B. Dorsey. Judge Dorsey had his allies and they were the Baileys, Bo, Eddie, Bernard and many more. Others who were influential in the Dorsey Machine, as the liberals who had their own machine liked to call it, were “lieutenants” of the political organization – one of whom was Charlie Hall.

To simply report that Charlie Hall just kicked the bucket is to do the man a great injustice, without describing the important role he played in the politics and life of one county of three-thousand in America.

Charlie rose from being a lieutenant to being a standard-bearer in that in 1974 he mounted a credible campaign for County Commissioner and lost the Democratic Primary to John Knight Parlett, the scion of a gas empire on the east coast.

The Same Old Tune: — Cindy Jones — Paid for by Developers – John Parlett, Boosted by Phil Dorsey and Choreographed by Tommy “Hambone” McKay

Who is the treasurer of the Blue Crab Conservatives? Elizabeth Johnson, who is the sister of McKay.

Who funded the Blue Crab Conservatives? According to financial filings with the State of Maryland, the nearly $18,000 on hand to pay for its activities, such as the pretty Cindy Jones postcard, was collected and donated principally by John K. Parlett. The companies to which the money came from were from a collection of firms, companies and corporations controlled by Parlett.

What kind of planning is taking place in the north end of St. Mary’s County that could use the wonderful advice of a former Prince Georges County politico?

Three-way circular firing squad defines GOP primary in District 29A

LEONARDTOWN, MD. — Who would have thought that it makes good sense in a GOP primary to have Good Old Boy Democrat Del. Johnny Wood make an endorsement of one of the three Republicans competing for their party’s nomination? Or that the same candidate would also trot out former Commissioner Dan Raley, also a Democrat, to endorse him, even after Raley got trounced by Treasurer Jan Norris four years earlier? Raley’s decision to attempt to uproot the popular Norris in a power grab upset women all over St. Mary’s County and Raley left town on election night with his tail between his legs.
