Senate President Mike Miller

Senate President Mike Miller told reporters Monday that the Joint Committee on Ethics has decided on action to take on Sen. Ulysses Currie, D- Prince George’s, who failed to report $250,000 in consulting income from Shoppers Food Warehouse.

Miller said he doesn’t know what the Ethics Committee decided, but the Senate will likely abide by its recommendations, which he expected to come to the Senate floor this week. The committee has been meeting behind closed doors.

Robert Lang has audio of the interview with Miller.

Currie was acquitted of federal bribery charges last year.

    Hey guys remember Currie is a nice guy according to testimony at his Federal trial. Just not great at keeping up with paperwork! You have to wonder why Miller took the time to tell reporters he’d support whatever the committee decided in secret. Struck with his own importance!

    WHAT ETHICS….ANY OTHER CITIZEN OF MD WOULD BE IN JAIL…..YOU GOT TO HAVE THE RIGHT CORRUPT  FRIENDS.
     
    THIS GUY WAS APPOINTED BY THE GOV AND ASSEMBLY AS HEAD OF THE STATE BUDGET,  SO THEY COULD TWIST IT.  WHY CANT WE HAVE A DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT CAN SEE ITS OWN CORRUPTION AND EGO.  THE WIN AT ALL COSTS IS SHAMEFUL.
     
    FOGIVE THE LARGE CAPS I HAVE A HARD TIME SEEING THE KEY BOARD AND MUCH HONESTY IN OUR STATE POLITICS.
     
    IT WOULD BE HEALTHY TO VOTE NO TO EVERY POLITICIAN IN OFFICE AND TO RECALL MOM.

    ITS A GOOD TIME TO HIDE THE ROTTEN APPLE IN THE BARREL WHILE THE PUBLIC IS DISTRACTED.

    Exactly Thunter40us! What ethics? And all behind closed doors! If we did anything illegal we have to go before a judge and a jury of our peers-chosen by the courts, I might add! They all think they are above the law. They throw a couple under the bus every now & again to make us think they are upholding the law.

    What Ethics? The bum need to go. If I had done something like that you know the IRS would be at my door.. It starts at O’Malley door goes to the Senate, House of Representative none have any Ethics.. Keep up the great work by running the state of Maryland into the Socialist state you want..
