  • O'Malley signs death penalty repeal

    O'Malley signs death penalty repeal
    Surrounded by religious leaders, civil rights activists and others who have fought for years to stop executions in Maryland, Gov. Martin O'Malley signed legislation Thursday repealing the state's death penalty. Unless the law is overturned in a...
  • Ehrlich good for a laugh

    I would like to first thank the editorial board of The Sun for electing to publish, week after week, the words of Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr. He is indeed a funny man, and no matter how desperate things become, Mr. Ehrlich has a way of breaking though to bring...
  • Maryland gun-control opponents won't seek referendum

    Maryland gun-control opponents won't seek referendum
    Opponents of Maryland's tough new gun-control law said Wednesday that they will not seek to petition it to referendum and instead will back a lawsuit planned by the National Rifle Association. "This is a constitutional right that should not go to the...
  • Defeats lead to calls for Maryland Republican chief's ouster

    Defeats lead to calls for Maryland Republican chief's ouster
    After the sound drubbing Maryland Republicans received at the ballot box this month, a faction in the state GOP is calling for the resignation of state party Chairman Alex Mooney. The effort follows a race in which the state party not only saw most of...
  • Washington voters approve gay marriage after similar measures pass in Maryland, Maine

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state has approved gay marriage, joining Maine and Maryland as the first states to pass same-sex marriage by popular vote. Voter returns released since election night show Referendum 74 has maintained its lead of 52...

    Penn National, up to its old tricks
    There was a strong case to be made against Question 7, Maryland's referendum on expanded gambling, and we made it. Although it may make sense for Maryland to adopt table games, and eventually even to allow a sixth casino in Prince George's County, the...
  • Legal challenge filed in Balto. Co. zoning referendum

    Lawyers representing developers of the former Solo Cup and Middle River Depot properties asked the Baltimore County elections board Friday to reject petitions for a referendum to overturn zoning votes, saying the signatures were obtained by fraud. A memo...
  • Passage of Question 6 'good for dignity,' gays and lesbians say

    Passage of Question 6 'good for dignity,' gays and lesbians say
    In one sense, last week's approval of Question 6, a referendum on the Civil Marriage Protection Act, came too late for Homeland residents Lisa Polyak and Gita Deane, the lead plaintiffs in an unsuccessful lawsuit that presaged same-sex marriage in...
  • A referendum on referendums?

    A referendum on referendums?
    Last week was a very good one for Maryland's governor. He helped President Barack Obama win another term, increased the number of Democrats representing his state in Congress while also getting all his party's incumbents re-elected and went 7-for-7 on...
  • Why let voters get in the way with democracy?

    It's really a shame! The Democratic Party led by Gov. Martin O'Malley would make it harder for referendums to make it on a ballot ("A referendum on referendums?" Nov. 13). It's plain to see that Democrats rule this state and they don't want voters...
  • Referendums remain constitutionally sound

    It's amazing that the Gov. Martin O'Malley would make such an asinine assessment of a referendum process that was approved by the people both at its inception and during the 2012 election cycle ("A referendum on referendums," Nov. 13). First, the...
