Examiner, 14 Jul 2010 (Peterson).
Maryland officials are investigating an educational nonprofit group run by Prince George's County Executive candidate Rushern Baker for failing to report the charity's financial situation over the past three years.
Baker's Landover organization, Community Teachers Institute Inc., is in violation of a state law requiring nonprofits to submit financial information annually, according to the Maryland Secretary of State's Office. The nonprofit was running a nearly $500,000 deficit in 2006, the latest financial documentation on state record indicates.
Baker campaign spokesman James Adams said Tuesday the charity submitted financial records for the missing years on June 18, but Richard Morris, charities director for the Secretary of State's Office, said he still has not received the documentation.
