O'Malley should clean house over jail scandal

I could not agree more with The Sun's editorial regarding Gov. Martin O'Malley and corruption in the city jail ("Spinning corruption," May 1). Governor O'Malley is running for higher office and is not taking responsibility for the corrections system corruption that has been going on for decades. Heads should roll and replacements be made, rather than allowing the current "leadership" to fix the system that is broken and needs rebuilding.

Allowing the current secretary to continue in office sends the message that a Band-Aid is being placed on cancer. I expected more and better from our governor — although, it is in keeping with his leadership style, which is all glitz and no substance.

Lots of chutzpah, indeed.
