Court: Ousted delegate cannot get job back


Associated Press

— ANNAPOLIS (AP) — The state’s highest court has ruled that former delegate Tiffany Alston will not get her seat back and that the governor can fill the vacancy in Prince George’s County.

The Court of Appeals, in a brief ruling, said Friday that neither Alston nor Greg Hall, whom the Prince George’s Democratic Central Committee selected to fill the spot, will get the position.

Alston was removed from office after entering a plea deal relating to misconduct in office, though her attorneys had contended she should be reinstated because her sentence has been modified.
