Prince George's Labor War

(Posted 18 Aug 2008)

Prince George’s Labor War, Part One.
Maryland Politics Watch, 18 Aug 2008 (Adam Pagnucco).

Battle Over Labor Support in Prince George's County.
Free State Politics, 18 Aug 2008 (Eric Luedtke).
It hasn't gotten that much play in the traditional media, but there's been a low-level political war going on in Prince George's County between labor unions and the county Democratic Central Committee, which is traditionally controlled by the county's state senators.  Adam at MPW is doing a series on the conflict, and I'll reserve comment until he's done with his series.
