By ASSOCIATED PRESS | 10/28/12 2:29 PM EDT
REISTERSTOWN, Md. Gov. Martin OMalley says early voting on Monday in Maryland has been canceled due to the approach of Hurricane Sandy.

Tinfoil hat isn't on, but it's handy!
OWEmalley must have seen too much trending toward a GOP victory.
It would take 3 successive category 5 hurricanes to hit Maryland before that state ever sides with Romney. Like no other state, Maryland is an infant at the teat of the U.S. government.
I saw O’Malley on the tube live tonight. He really didn’t have much to say, was using it as a political stunt. You could tell, because he spent 5 minutes reading off the list every school system in the state that was going to be closed, and then proceeded to give the weather forecast. The whole issue of early voting only came up during the Q&a portion.
I think they passed a law that made their voting moot. Their electors were supposed to vote not for the winner in MD but for the winner of the popular vote.
So they may end up voting for Romney after all.
This urban legend keeps popping up here but it needs a ton more states to get on board before it happens.
OMG, voter suppression in Maryland!
You KNOW this is a Tea party plot planned by Mitt Romney.
He planned this Hurricane to suppress the vote. Anything to stop ‘people of color’ from voting for OBAMA.

Maryland "Freak State" PING!
I saw some of Owe’Malley’s speech about the storm. His basic take: “Some people are gonna die, Holmes! We’re doomed.” Nothing inspiring or motivational there.
