PAC established to oppose Peroutka in Anne Arundel Co.

An Anne Arundel County councilman and a veteran trial lawyer have teamed up to create a political action committee to raise money to defeat far-right Republican nominee Michael Peroutka's bid for a council seat.

County Councilman Jamie Benoit, a Democrat who is not seeking re-election, is listed as chairman of PAC. Daniel Clements, a trial lawyer and Democratic activist, is treasurer.

Clements said the committee had been registered with the state elections board but that the web site only became operational Friday.

Peroutka, who squeaked out a victory in the primary, faces Democrat Patrick Armstrong in the general election.

Peroutka, a member of the secessionist League of the South, has been repudiated by GOP gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan.
