Removal from office
Frederick News-Post - Editorial

State lawmakers look set to toughen penalties for our more errant elected officials, a move prompted by the corruption cases of former Prince George’s County Executive Jack Johnson, his wife, Leslie, who served on the County Council, and former Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon, among others.

One bill, sponsored by Delegate Jolene Ivey, a Prince George’s County Democrat, would amend the Maryland Constitution to remove state, county or municipal elected officials from office upon conviction or guilty plea.
If this legislation is successful, and it has picked up enough co-sponsors in both the House and the Senate that it looks set to be just that, voters will have their say on it as a ballot measure in November.
