Republican leaders in the House and Senate today called upon Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler to request an investigation by the State Prosecutor into actions taken by the House and Senate during the 2007 Special Session that violated Maryland’s Constitution.


“This is a matter of government transparency and the integrity of the State’s Constitution,” said House Minority Leader Anthony O’Donnell. “The Attorney General’s office is too vested in defending this issue and cannot objectively seek the truth in a non-adversarial role. They are engaged in representing the interests of their client”.


“In accordance with section 9-1203 of the State Government Article, we call upon the Attorney General to request an investigation by the State Prosecutor”, said Senate Minority Whip Allan Kittleman. “The State Prosecutor is an independent agency with no vested interest in the outcome of this investigation. They can conduct a fair and objective inquiry into what occurred.”


“The State Prosecutor’s Office was created with a mind towards preserving the integrity of government,” said House Minority Whip Christopher B. Shank. “They have both the resources and the mandate to determine the facts and appropriate course of action. The citizens of Maryland deserve to know the full, unbiased truth related to all of these matters and their government.”
