The Maryland House of Delegates vote unaminously to reprimand Delegate Jay Jalisi for his "abusive" treatment of staff and he defends himself in an interview. (Barbara Haddock Taylor, Baltimore Sun video)
Maryland is a little, tiny state. It doesn't take long to get from one end to the other. I have always questioned why our legislators in Annapolis are entitled to live in expensive hotel rooms at taxpayer expense during the legislative session instead of commuting as we ordinary taxpayers must do.
Delegate Jalisi should understand that no one forced him into his current situation. He made the decision to run for office. If he resents his position so much that he feels it is beneath him to treat his employees and his constituents with respect then he should resign.
I doubt that he will, however. It seems that Delegate Jalisi, like so many others in the General “Asylum,” enjoys the power and authority far too much.
