I was also surprised by the issue in Maryland:^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/politics/blog/bal-..."The Maryland Democratic Party has endorsed the write-in candidacy of Eastern Shore physician John LaFerla to challenge freshman Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District.“Dr. LaFerla has resounding grassroots support and the full confidence of the Party’s Executive Committee and Democratic leaders,” Democratic State Chairwoman Yvette Lewis said in a statement Monday.LaFerla replaces Wendy Rosen, who won a party primary in April but withdrew from the race last week amid allegations that she was registered and had voted in two states in 2006 and 2008.Her name will remain on the Nov. 6 ballot because the deadline to remove it has passed"^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^But things do happen - and there is also a real potential problemif a voter is turned away because of an error. Elections are important and ensuring they are as legitimate as possible seems reasonable.But my concerns are the reflex to attack another group merely because they do not follow one party's line or another.I think that is a dangerous practice for our republic.Howie52
