The Governor wants to call a General Assembly special session
that will focus on gambling. Mayor Rawlings-Blake is supporting him and sent out this Tweet a couple of hours ago. MarylandReporter.com posted an article entitled “Analysis: Lots of good reasons not to hold a special session on gambling” that I feel properly addresses this wasteful proposal. I feel the Governor is partially doing this so he can point to his “leadership in hard times” and his desire to at any cost “help the children” during his slow buildup to his 2016 run for the United States presidency.
