Former Governor Robert Ehrlich says he is not to blame for the financial problems of the city owned Hilton Hotel in Baltimore, and current Governor Martin O'Malley needs to "stop whining" about it.
Ehrlich's comments to WBAL-TV came two days after O'Malley told reporters that the city hotel is losing money, because Ehrlich wouldn't provide state funds for its construction.
As Baltimore mayor, O'Malley convinced the city to finance the hotel which opened in 2008, one year after O'Malley took office as governor.
"It probably would have been better structured if we had a more cooperative state. You may recall that, at the time, we asked and we were told no by the then governor," O'Malley said Wednesday.
