NEWS AND COMMENTARY ON MONEY IN POLITICS

Included in the fundraising achieved by Richard Fritz for the June 14, 2022, reporting period for the 2022 Republican Primary election from legal eagles, defense attorneys, and their spouses, which come in handy for arranging plea deals for their clients. In contrast, Jaymi Sterling announced that she would not take contributions from criminal defense attorneys who practice in St. Mary’s County. Some of the largest contributions to Fritz come from local seekers of plea deals that came within days of an easy plea deal granted – which continues the years of corruption in the Fritz years since he was first sworn in as States Attorney in 1999.

Mega-Pot Factory in Critical Area Yields Furor

RESIDENTS OF THE SEVENTH DISTRICT OVER MAY REJECT FRITZ OVER HIS SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL SUPPORT BY POT FACTORY MAFIA

Also included in the latest filing of campaign contributions to Fritz was a swarm of donations from the Pot Factory folks led by Charlie Mattingly, who was able to construct an industrial project in a residential area in Abell, which is in the critical area.
An investigation by the St. Mary’s Sheriff’s Department narcotics division came about when they learned that the Pot Factory folks got a head start on their grow business before the legal opening date arrived for medical grow facilities.
Marijuana remains a federally illegal drug and shipping any marijuana through the mail over the threshold allowed by the Postal Service for cannabis oil is illegal. The Postal Service says that the requirement that the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) concentration of such hemp (or its derivatives) may not exceed a 0.3 percent limit. An investigation brought to Fritz into the Pot Factory folks that involved plants and seeds shipped in from Colorado and other areas disappeared and was never prosecuted by Fritz.

POLITICS SEVENTH DISTRICT STYLE OUT, SEO IN

Not relying solely on his street team to intimidate county residents who have displayed campaign signs for his opponent, Fritz hired a Florida firm to provide him with search engine optimization for a fee of $6,000.

The Over the Hill Gang of Former Honchos and Has-Beens

When politicians can no longer inspire voters to support a candidate or put on a campaign of their own, they often take action in a campaign in the only way left for them, which is to write a check.
For a group of once vibrant politicians, the following folks have decided to throw their lot in with the felonious Fritz and join him in his Last Hurrah instead of supporting Jaymi Sterling in sweeping out the corruption of the national embarrassment of the Fritz reign in Leonardtown.
A former St. Mary’s County School Board president and current member of the Democratic Central Committee – Dr. Sal Raspa – plunked down $115 for Fritz on June 5 along with $200 from Raspa’s breakfast buddy, former Republican St. Mary’s Commissioner Dan Morris, who provided Fritz with his donation. Morris formerly worked as an investigator for Fritz and lost a race for the Democratic nomination for Sheriff in 2002 to Sheriff David Zylak.
Raspa did not file for another term on the Democratic Central Committee as the loony leftists who dominate the once strong St. Mary’s Democratic Party couldn’t even fill out a full ticket for Central Committee or County Commissioner with a long list of offices unopposed in the General Election by a Democrat candidate. To see the esteemed educator Raspa falling in line with the likes of Fritz in his declining years is sad. Raspa guided the Board of Education through challenging times, hiring former Superintendent Mike Martirano and achieving top rankings for the public schools in St. Mary’s.
School Board member James Davis contributed $50 to Fritz, a surprise and embarrassment to his wife, Ellynne Brice Davis, a candidate for Orphans Court Judge and a strong supporter of Jaymi Sterling. James Davis lied about attending the Fritz fundraiser on June 5th while his wife was playing the piano for church services at St. Aloysius. James Davis is not likely to run for school board again due to being older than Joe Biden by five years, suffering serious illness in recent months, being rushed to hospitals more than six times, and missing many school board meetings. Instead of writing checks to failing campaigns, Davis should resign from the school board so voters can be represented during important deliberations.

Ellynne Brice Davis is challenging the ethically challenged group of sitting judges on the Orphans Court, one of which, Michael White, is also a contributor to Fritz.
Former Commissioner candidate in 1990, 1994, 1998, and again in 2002, Vernon Gray, provided a contribution of $100 to Fritz on April 24, 2022. Gray has run for office as both a Democrat and a Republican, winning the GOP nomination for St. Mary’s Commissioner in 2002 but losing to Democrat Dan Raley in the General Election.
