None of the matters alleged by the Attorney Grievance Commission have anything to do with Timmons' role as Pugh's campaign treasurer. And the case is new, so Timmons' response (if any) has not yet been recorded [Update: shortly after this blog was published on Friday, Timmons emailed City Paper to say the allegations are false. "As I have engaged the law firm of Joseph Greenwald & Laake, Pa. , Tim Maloney , to represent me in this matter , I am prevented from making any comments," he wrote]. But the allegations are serious, and illustrate just one of the pitfalls faced by Baltimore politicians in search of campaign help. [Update: Timmons is also treasurer for City Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young, City Council member Warren Branch (13th District) Dels. Talmadge Branch (D-45th District) and JayJalisi (10th District), and the District 40 Team Slate of Dels Frank Conaway and Barbara A. Robinson].
