PG County Executive Jack Johnson and his wife Leslie, Incoming Council Woman Leslie Johnson, Arrested by FBI
I won't repeat all the details, but there are a few facts that probably will not be reported elsewhere.
Jack Johnson has long had a reputation for questionable ethics.
Democrat Leslie Johnson has just been elected to represent PG Council District 6. No Republican ran against her.
Council District 6 largely overlaps General Assembly District 25. The Democratic Senator from that district is under federal indictment on numerous counts. No Republican ran against him.
I am unaware of any official Republican Party statements concerning the indictment of Sen. Currie or previous questions raised about Jack Johnson's behavior in office.
The Republican Party is unlikely to make much progress in rebuilding itself in Maryland when it sits idly by, not challenging corrupt Democratic politicians at the polls or in the media.
