The American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland is looking into allegations that an Anne Arundel County Executive requested police keep dossiers on his political opponents. The ACLU said today it's concerned that John Leopold's alleged actions might violate a 2009 law barring surveillance of that nature.

Along with the ACLU, the director of Civil Rights for the Maryland Attorney General, Carl Snowden, is requesting an investigation by the County Council.

Snowden is among those Leopold allegedly asked county police to keep records on, because he viewed him as a political challenger.

Leopold was indicted last week on charges of misusing his police protection squad, including making them wait while he had sexual encounters in parking lots. Leopold said he will fight the charges.
