I didn't either.
However, the folks who brought you the largest tax increase in Maryland history and said that they would stop massive electricity rate increases are getting huge pay increases.
The governor has a history of rewarding failure:
Gov. Martin O'Malley gave more than $600,000 in pay raises to 47 of his top aides at a time when legislative analysts are considering postponing raises for state employees to close a $333 million budget shortfall, according to documents obtained by The Washington Times.
The raises, which range between $2,167 and $33,265 — or between 2.3 percent and 37.5 percent of the employee's salary — come as state lawmakers say they may have to cut $570 million or more in state spending.
In 2000, as mayor of Baltimore, Mr. O'Malley accepted a raise in salary from $95,000 to $125,000 that his predecessor had declined because of the city's troubled financial condition. Baltimore at the time was facing a $158 million shortfall, but Mr. O'Malley also increased the salary potential for his top aides from a maximum of $108,700 to a maximum of $140,000.
Nice work, if you can get it.
