New Scandal for the Wild Child.
Maryland Politics Watch, 15 May 2010 (Pagnucco).
Former WSSC Commissioner Juanita “Wild Child” Miller has a tempestuous past, ripping up the agency over bogus accusations of racism and firing off ranting mass emails to every employee at once. Now the Wild Child is running for Prince George’s County Council and is embroiled in the biggest scandal of her volcanic political career: plagiarism. That’s right, folks – Miller has literally stolen the campaign platform of an opponent. [Tamara Davis Brown]Pr. Geo's council candidate blames volunteers for lifting platform from rival.
Note the lack of an authority line [in Miller's flyer] – a classic violation of Maryland election law.
As far as we know, there is no election law against plagiarism. But if the Wild Child is stealing campaign material as a candidate, what will she steal if she gets elected?

Miller, a candidate for Council District 9, passed out fliers (see below) during a May 10 homeowner's association meeting ...Rival candidate, Tamara Davis Brown, was in attendance to see the near word-for-word similarity with the platform her campaign says was published on her Web site in December.
