Laptop Might Hold Key To Commissioner's Firing [MD4BUSH Lives!]
WBAL TV Channel 11 Baltimore, MD ^ | July 25, 2006 | WBAL TV

Posted on 07/26/2006 8:44:22 AM PDT by ILLUMINATI_216

BALTIMORE -- Former Baltimore City police commissioner Kevin Clark's lawyers claimed a city-owned laptop computer may hold the key to why their client was fired.
WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team lead investigative reporter Jayne Miller said that same computer may answer the riddle surrounding a political dirty tricks mystery as well.
Miller reported the computer in question was stolen just weeks before Clark was fired Nov. 2004, and what it may have contained explains why Clark was tossed out as police commissioner. Miller reported with Clark's lawsuit against the city now revived, his lawyers have delivered a letter to city hall demanding the city preserve the contents of a laptop computer that was used by Baltimore City labor commissioner Sean Malone. Miller said Malone is a close ally of Mayor Martin O'Malley, and at one time, held a high-ranking job in the police department.
In their letter, Clark's lawyers claimed the computer contained "hundreds of items concerning commissioner Kevin Clark" and "a significant number of items related to MD4BUSH."
Miller reported MD4BUSH is the mysterious Internet user who communicated with Joe Steffen, the former aide to Gov. Robert Ehrlich, about the mayor's personal life in October and November of 2004. Previous reports by 11 News have revealed evidence that a Democratic Party operative may have been involved in the MD4BUSH postings. Clark's lawyers said their claim is based on information passed through a lawyer from an anonymous source.

I seem to remember reading about him before. Anybody got a link for a refresher?

I love it when FR plays into politics in a very public and tangible way.

On WBAL radio, Jayne Miller, of WBAL TV, said the Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley employee, Sean Malone, claimed his laptop was stolen on October 7, 2004......the same day MD4BUSH logged in to join FreeRepublic.com [to spread rumors about O'Malley in an effort to set a sting up on Steffen/ncpac!]

ahahahahahahaaaaa!

what a coincidence!

Okay, let me do some speculating and ruminating and then I must eat lunch.

I have kept up with the MD4BUSH thing and understand how Joe Steffen was a Freeper, forget his name. This MD4BUSH character was trying to lure Steffen into detailing the Mayor O'Malley scoop that he lived apart from his wife in some apartment near Baltimore City Hall. The hint also in those discussions was that Mayor OM made Clinton look like a piker.

So now we have Baltimore's Labor Commissioner who had a computer. Mayor OM evidently fired this guy Clark, which I did not know, and now Clark is trying to put somebody's feet to the fire. Also the article asserts that the reason that Clark was fired was BECAUSE he was investigating Malone's computer.

The MD4BUSH connection is almost an afterthought here.

Anyway, this is starting to smell really, really bad. SOMETHING was on Malone's computer and former police commissioner Clark knew about it. Mayor OM fires Clark. Malone admits there was sexual stuff on his computer but shrugs it off.

Folks, hey, I'll say it. I am positive we are talking child porn here.

No way would the police commissioner be investigating simple porn on even the bloated bureaucracies' employees. There was a child porn investigation ongoing in the Baltimore police department and they discovered Malone was a player.

Malone is a friend of Mayor OM. Malone has something on OM. Who knows, maybe Mayor OM is in on the child porn, sweet young teen stuff, like that? But OM FIRED the police commissioner! A big step, eh?

As for the MD4BUSH, well I thought the secret guy was already identified as some Dem operative. And yet over and over again I see that the name will be revealed when I thought it was.

I think that Malone was the one involved with the MD4BUSH and he was trying to get out a rumor involving OM that he lived apart from his wife. Why? Allegedly someone wanted to sting an Ehrlich guy, Steffen, and be able to claim the Mayor OM lives with his wife and it was all a Republican joke.

I'm perfectly serious here that what might appear to be just a smirk to us Freepers is WAAAAAy more. Somebody's trying to protect OM and this Malone guy is knee deep in this.

Gotta think outside the box with these politicos, ladies and gems. They aren't nice people sometimes like all of us.

Like here lately Joe Wilson is all involved with LA thief Jefferson. Point being, mark my words, when they go on the offensive so viciously like this, there's something very, very vulnerable that needs discovery.

I'd love to see WBAL stay on this. It's about the only decent radio station in Baltimore.

Here is the MD4Bush primer from 11/05.

I don't recall hearing Sean Malone's name before in connection with the MD4Bush Saga.

Sure is. Every time you think the story has finally gone away, it comes back. We still haven't definitively found out the identity of MD4Bush, though.

By the way, according to another article on WBAL-TV's website, O'Malley's running ads touting his family values, which is ironic since the whole MD4Bush saga began over rumors (or were they rumours?) of O'Malley's infidelity.

Unfortunately, I am afraid not. Reminds me of the old joke: Why can't you circumcise Iranians? Because there's no end to those pr**ks!

BTW, glad to see that you're back in Maryland. Welcome home!

You made a good point that it might involve child porn. Things have a way of being exposed.

What else can it be?

SOMETHING is on Malone's hard drive. Think of all it could possibly be.

-emails sent to someone? In that case the email recipient would have a copy.

-word processing or Excel documents? Come on. This would not warrant a police investigation.

-Adult porn? This could be and the article alludes to some sexual content admitted to by Malone. I find it a stretch that MOM and/or the Baltimore police would be all involved in a horny bureaucrat and some adult porn. Across the fruited plains I bet government workers do this all the time.

What is UNIQUE about a SPECIFIC hard drive?

It has to be child porn. It's how they catch these guys. The article keeps referring to a HARD DRIVE. Something on that hard drive is incriminating. I can't think of anything else that would cause a Mayor to actually FIRE a city's Chief of Police. That's a mighty action.

Remember too that the hard drive was stolen by somebody from Malone. How convenient.

There's a lot more to this story than meets the eye.

There's some serious covering up going on.

Merryland is a cesspool. I am not surprised.

Thanks for the welcome. It's been a strange, strange, trip.

I'm still doing occasional out of state gigs, but am spending most of my time here now.

This MD4Bush stuff is getting wilder by the minute.

It seems to me that the lap-top has probably been formatted, by now. Or has a new hard drive with the old hard drive being in a land-fill.

the whole porn thing is a smokescreen.

if the police chief found child porn, he would report it to the FBI because it would be a federal crime.

this laptop had md4bush stuff on it back when md4bush was first created, and long before the big washington comPost story which contained freepmail conversations was published.

the porn, of course, should have led to malone's dismissal, not his promotion to labor secretary!

but the story is MD4BUSH.

MOM's close friend was in on it.

So MOM prolly was too.

Just a hunch.

I heard about this on WBAL. The date of the "robbery" and loss of the laptop is just too convenient. And we talked about Sean Malone somewhere in one of the threads. I'll see what I can find.

Suffice it to say that the O'Malley camp is in full blown damage control at this point. They know Ehrlich has the goods on them and they're plotting plausible deniablity. The laptop was stolen. Dana Milbanks shivs Mike Steele. Matt Mosk signs on as MD4Bush. Do they think we're stupid?

I don't remember Sean Malone's name coming up in any of the previous MD4Bush threads. A Google search of Free Republic for "Sean Malone" seems to confirm my recollection - nothing comes up but the two articles from this week and an article mentioning an unrelated "Sean Malone" on one of the Terrorist Roundup threads.

You might be right. But I recall mentioning his name when we were fishing for campaign folks in O'Malley's camp. To the best of my memory he may be related to a guy in the Baltimore County Executives office. Possibly even a brother.

It's late. I'll try to piece it together tomorrow. Luckily, WBAL is all over it so I doubt it will be up to us to try and put it together.

Good luck hunting. Let us know what you find.

To the best of my memory he may be related to a guy in the Baltimore County Executives office. Possibly even a brother.

Ryan O'Doherty's brother, Damien worked/works in the Baltimore County Executive's office. I'm not sure about Sean Malone's relatives, but it wouldn't shock me given how Maryland politics seem to work.
