There’s been a lot of hullabaloo about the MD-04 Congressional race of progressive Donna Edwards vs. corporation-backed Albert Wynn. There was a lot of screwy, shady stuff going on in MD yesterday. Folks are right to cry foul and the Washington Post was wrong to call a winner before the votes have been counted. This are unusual shenanigans for Montgomery and Prince George’s County, 2 wealthy and well-run counties. Just because 2 African-Americans are running, do they think we won’t notice or care how the vote goes? Or that voters will simply roll over and allow their own disenfranchisement? After Ohio and Florida, that’s a dumb attitude.

I think this may be a bitter fight. If Donna is declared the winner by a slim margin (under 1000 votes maybe), I’m willing to bet that Albert Wynn, backed with big business $$$ will take her to court and contest the election. That’s a shame because it’s time for Wynn to step aside and let a talented candidate on the right side of the issues for the district and for Americans run in the general election for the House seat. Wynn is a bad egg — a liar and a cheat. This is documented. Where is the Congressional Black Caucus to say, look, we want a clean candidate among our ranks like Donna Edwards? Especially after the embarrassment of Jefferson and the bribes in the freezer. Or have they all sold out to the Man, like Wynn, too? At what point does fraud and failure to disclose contribution sources on his part become a real issue and dis-qualifier — and why isn’t the MSM exposing that aspect of the race?

Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.
