As reported here more than a week ago, Wicomico County personnel and resources have been used for partisan political purposes – to promote Anthony Brown’s campaign. Pollitt is his local campaign manager.
This afternoon and evening WBOC reported that despite its “numerous attempts” to reach them for comment both Rick Pollitt and Ms. Lee-Brooks, his public information officer, did not respond. We know and have reported that Pollitt was campaigning today – apparently he could not be bothered to address the matter.
That’s tantamount to admitting that he is involved in the episode in which the PIO was “requested” to send an e-mail for the purpose of smearing Larry Hogan at a press conference sponsored by Anthony Brown and Pollitt.
