ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland House of Delegates has voted to reprimand an Anne Arundel County lawmaker.
Republican Delegate Tony McConkey apologized Tuesday for behavior cited in a report by a legislative ethics committee. The House voted 127-to-3 for a resolution to reprimand McConkey.
The panel found that he had a conflict of interest when he tried to change legislation in order to help him get his real estate license back. The amendments backed by McConkey also would have reduced the interest on $75,000 he owed a fund for improper real estate services relating to three clients.
The report also says McConkey cursed at a senator who refused to support the measures and refused to leave the senator's office. He was then escorted from the office by police and security officers.
