In Maryland, one of the candidates running in today's primary elections is facing federal bribery charges. But, he's almost guaranteed to win.
Ulysses Currie is a veteran Democratic state senator from Prince Georges County. He's facing a federal indictment, on charges he took almost $250,000 in bribes from a grocery store chain.
But the indictment came through two weeks ago - too late for other candidates to get their names on the primary ballot. So Currie is running unopposed.
At this polling place in Curries district, voter Juanita Brower says she's frustrated. But, she's withholding judgment, because sometimes folks are told that they've done something wrong and it proves to be different later on. So let's see what happens.
A staffer in Currie's office says the Senator is not actively campaigning for reelection.
Lee Calhoun, a former associate of the D.C. businessman at the center of a wide-ranging investigation into D.C. corruption, is said to have made campaign contributions in the names of other people.
