If that doesn't give the people of Maryland enough of a sour feeling about our state government, the treatment of Mr. Currie by his colleagues surely should. During the last several weeks, a who's who of Maryland politics went to the federal courthouse in Baltimore to testify on Mr. Currie's behalf. Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown testified that Mr. Currie was "a man of strong integrity." Rep. Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House of Representatives, said he was "a decent, honest person." State Sen. Brian E. Frosh and Rep. Elijah Cummings both testified to his good character. Even former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr., a Republican, stuck up for him.
