O’Malley admits fraud on the voters, OR, why the Democrats need to be Replaced in Maryland, they are Criminals – by their own Admission
The Democratic Party in Maryland is so corrupt, and has lost touch with the needs of the public so badly, and has hurt the state through unethical and illegal maneuvers so many times — we as concerned citizens really don’t have an alternative anymore, we need to throw them all out.
This piece below from the Baltimore Sun, highlights just one symptom of how sick the Party is in this state right now, and also illustrates how badly we need systemic change.
Even if the citizens of the state were upset and wanted a change, with assholes like O’Malley in power, that was never going to happen — because he was willing to game the system to make sure it didn’t.

Maryland Democrats drew the state’s convoluted congressional districts with an eye toward ousting a longtime Republican incumbent and replacing him with a Democrat, former Gov. Martin O’Malley has acknowledged as part of a high-profile legal challenge to the maps winding its way through federal court.
The acknowledgment that state Democrats were working in 2011 to add a seventh member of their party to the House of Representatives, widely understood at the time but seldom conceded publicly even now, comes as Republican Gov. Larry Hogan is advocating for a nonpartisan redistricting commission, ostensibly to curb partisan gerrymandering.
The lawsuit, filed in 2013 by a former federal employee, is shedding new light on the machinations that took place behind the scenes as Democrats sought to oust Republican Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett from the seat he had held for nearly two decades.
“That was my hope,” O’Malley told attorneys in a deposition. “It was also my intent to create … a district where the people would be more likely to elect a Democrat than a Republican.”
Mapmakers extended the boundaries of Bartlett’s Western Maryland district into Democratic portions of Montgomery and Frederick counties after the 2010 Census, and former banker John Delaney, a Democrat, won the seat in 2012 by nearly 21 percentage points.
