ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The Maryland State Police are criticizing Attorney General Doug Gansler for calling the commander of the executive protection section a "henchman" of Gov. Martin O'Malley and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown.
Gansler, who is running for governor, said Tuesday on WJLA-TV that reports saying he misused his security detail to get him to events are "100 percent completely untrue." He accused his opponent, Brown, of "running a campaign about dirty politics," and "pulling out some memo that some henchman wrote two or three years ago."
