    Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young said Saturday the unidentified officer who threw the punch had been “removed from police duties,” the Baltimore Sun reported. “I believe the first officer, who was struck multiple times by the woman, showed remarkable restraint by not retaliating as he was being assaulted,” Young said in a statement. “The woman should have been placed under arrest and not assaulted. Our system of justice does not involve the concept of an ‘eye for an eye.’ ”

    Lawmakers sharply criticized two Hogan administration procurement officials Wednesday for the acquisition of incomplete COVID-19 tests kits from South Korea. They also faced intense scrutiny over the state’s decision to purchase ventilators and masks from a newly-formed firm with strong ties to Republicans in Washington, D.C., but scant experience in procuring medical equipment. The state has sought to cancel that deal after equipment was slow to arrive and questions about the company, Blue Flame Medical, were raised in the media. Although he praised the Department of General Services for doing “great work” in locating “life-saving equipment for the people of...

    Dozens of House Democrats are planning to vote remotely this week for the first time in the chamber's history amid concerns about the health risks involved with traveling to Washington. At least 50 lawmakers are planning to vote by proxy, or designate a colleague physically present in the Capitol to cast votes on their behalf, according to a list published by the House clerk's office on Tuesday. Last week, just 18 were on the list. Democrats representing districts in the Washington, D.C. suburbs are the most popular proxies, given their proximity to the Capitol. Reps. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and Jamie...

    Tim O’Brien, a former campaign aide for Mike Bloomberg and a Bloomberg opinion writer, is coming under fire for posting side-by-side photos of Joe Biden at a war memorial on Memorial Day and a photo of President Trump golfing on a different day with the caption, “Different approaches to Memorial Day.” The photo of Joe Biden was taken when Biden visited Delaware Memorial Bridge Veteran's Memorial Park.

    When contemplating the malign activity of Rod Rosenstein; and how angered President Trump is with former AG Jeff Sessions; it is worth remembering that Sessions requested Rod Rosenstein as his deputy, and then immediately thereafter Sessions recused himself, effectively positioning Rosenstein to run the operation against President Trump. That’s the background context for a great interview by Gregg Jarrett where Jarrett walks through the timeline of events with former HPSCI Chairman Devin Nunes. At the 5:30 point of the interview, Nunes identifies Rosenstein as part of the coup attempt and blasts him for how Rosenstein structured the fraudulent scope memos....

Incidents of excessive speeding in Howard County have increased in the past few weeks, according to a county police news release. “With fewer cars on the road as a result of the state’s stay-at-home order, some drivers seem to have mistakenly assumed that traveling at high rates of speed would be an acceptable practice,” Police Chief Lisa Myers said in a statement. “We are receiving higher-than-usual complaints about speeding, and officers have observed vehicles traveling much...

Hogan said he is replacing the order with a “Safer at Home” advisory that will not be enforced by the rule of law. It allows manufacturing, retail, haircuts and worship services to resume with limitations. But some local officials have said they don’t...

    A Baltimore restaurant owner said Tuesday that she can't get employees to return to work because they make more in unemployment benefits than in working for her business. Melony Wagner, who owns Charles Village Pub in Baltimore, said her employees would prefer to continue collecting unemployment than come to work as they make more money staying home, according to a report by FOX 5 News. "They don't want to [come back to work] and I don't really want a restaurant full of unhappy employees," Wagner told the tv station. "They don't want to because it is less money. I am not...
