Examiner: Landover nonprofit under state investigation [Rushern Baker's Community Teachers Institute]

Landover nonprofit under state investigation.
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.

  1. So that is how he can continue to run for office without having a REAL JOB.

  2. How can you run a campaign centered around education but you haven't had a summer educational program since 2006? Get Real... GET JACKSON

  3. @ PG-Politics thank you for being balanced. Many have known about this for a while but no one has reported it.

  4. A lot of non-profits were hit hard during this period so this doesn't seem that surprising. The important thing is what happens next, will some leadership be shown or will this be blanketed in denial and arrogance like the sheriff's dog killing incident .

  5. @ Bobby

    Baker may have padded the books, but the Sheriff didn't kill the dogs, it was an accident caused by someone else and an apology was made. I agree with Jennifer C, GET REAL GET JACKSON!

  6. Get Your Information Right! CTI is not under investigation. Rushern Baker IS the best canditate. Get real..... the sheriff defends dog killers!
