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.
