MD Political Fundraising Issue Going To Court

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - An elections board ruling that allows a candidate for lieutenant governor to raise money during Maryland's legislative session is being challenged in court.
    
Attorney Daniel Clements filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking a ruling in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court.
    
Statewide officeholders and state legislators cannot raise money during the session. But the Maryland State Board of Elections has issued guidance saying Howard County Executive Ken Ulman, Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown's running mate, can raise money during the 90-day legislative session.
    
The board says a candidate not covered by the ban may raise funds as long as the candidate does not coordinate with the official who is banned during the restricted period.
    
Clements contends Ulman and Brown are "one team, inseparable, coordinated and working together by law and by their filing."
