This is shaping up to be a bad month for State Senator Joan Carter Conway. Watch the video below. Yes this woman (who smacks the camera like a thug) is really a state senator (43rd district)!
I find it very interesting that a government official is a prominent bidder (helping drive up the price) in a “government auction”:
Nice to see the ignorant police woman spouting nonsense while another woman with a camera phone is (rightfully) not harassed by authorities. What is really going on here? Are some people in Baltimore (politicians) more important than others?
The Baltimore Sun covers the story here (but conveniently forgets to post the full length video that I posted).
You have to love this quote from the esteemed state senator:
“He’s an angry, vindictive person”
If he is angry what does that make the state senator who ghetto smacks a guy’s camera after her “friend” has verbally spazed out on the same guy?

Councilman Bill Henry was also in attendance although he did not bid and he acted civilized. It turns out that Henry just announced that he will be running against Slap the Camera Conway in 2014:

(Baltimore, MD) – At a series of gatherings held earlier this week, Baltimore City Councilman Bill Henry (D-4th) announced his intention to run for the Maryland State Senate next spring in North & Northeast Baltimore’s newly-redrawn 43rd Legislative District.
“I love the job I have now, but there are important issues that impact our communities which can only be addressed at the state level,” said Henry. “In two terms on the City Council, I’ve been privileged with the opportunity to help a lot of people, but I believe I can help even more in the State Senate.”
Henry made his announcement to several dozen supporters Tuesday morning, at a series of events spread across the 43rd District. The first was at a morning meeting at Santorini’s on York Road in Henry’s current Council district, then moving to a mid-day meeting at The Red Canoe on Harford Road, and concluding with an evening event at the Peabody Heights Brewery in the Abell community.
When asked about specific issues he plans to address in the General Assembly, Henry listed liquor regulation, responsible banking practices, charter schools, additional funding for school facilities, and environmental preservation among his priorities. As a state senator, Henry has pledged to continue his practice of hosting districtwide community meetings each year, as well as continuing to regularly attend individual neighborhood meetings.
At 45, Henry is one of the youngest veteran members of the Council, chairing the Housing & Community Relations committee and serving as vice chair of the Taxation, Finance & Economic Development and Education & Youth committees. Henry introduced the City Council’s first successful resolution supporting civil marriage at the State level and just last year succeeded in passing landmark Late-Night Commercial Operations licensing legislation, which for the first time provides residents across the City with a process through which they can have a say in the hours of operation for problem businesses in their communities.
A graduate of several schools in the 43rd District, Henry earned a master’s of business administration degree with a concentration in finance from Loyola University Maryland, after receiving an undergraduate degree from the Johns Hopkins University, where he focused on urban studies and public policy. Henry lives in the North Baltimore neighborhood of Radnor-Winston with his wife Ruth and their two daughters, both of whom attend Baltimore City Public Schools.
