Default Maryland GOP Gets Behind Statewide Camera Referendum

Camera Fraud Article: Maryland GOP Gets Behind Statewide Camera Referendum


Maryland GOPOne of the more pleasant aspects of the speed camera debate is that you’ll find as much opposition to scameras from liberals as you will from conservatives. The issue usually brings people together across traditional party divides.


In Maryland, however, Governor Martin O’Malley (D) rammed the freeway speed camera bill through the General Assembly and created a significant partisan backlash. Here’s the Maryland Republican Party press release from today:



MDGOP Endorses Speed Camera Petition Drive


Unanimous Vote by Party’s Executive Committee


ANNAPOLIS—Last weekend, the Maryland Republican Party’s Executive Committee unanimously endorsed petitioning SB 277, the recently passed Speed Camera legislation to referendum.


“The Maryland Republican Party is proud to support Maryland for Responsible Enforcement’s Speed Camera Ballot Initiative,” said MDGOP Chairman Jim Pelura. “This is another tax being placed on the citizens of Maryland and there are mixed reviews as to whether this promotes safety on the highways.”


“Perhaps worst of all, if you receive a ticket from one of these cameras there is no ability to face your accuser in court. It’s your word against a machine, which is how Martin O’Malley and the Democrats in Annapolis want it,” Pelura continued. “They want to find every avenue they can to wring the money out of hard-working taxpayers. The Maryland Republican Party says ‘enough’ and we stand strongly behind placing this bill on the ballot in 2010 for the people to decide.”


We hope that having party support will bring the additional resources that will be needed to get the required signatures by the deadline. We also hope the Democratic Party realizes the need to get on board the referendum effort and stand on the side of the public, not on the side of a greedy politician.
