Anne Arundel County Executive Candidate Herb McMillan admitted he was wrong to allege that his Republican primary opponent, Jessica Haire, had received up to $90,000 in campaign contributions from the Halle Development Company, entities associated with Halle, and Halle Family members and employees.
“I stand corrected. It’s even worse than I thought. Local community groups have documented that Jessica Haire actually received $251,900 in campaign contributions from the Halle Development Company, entities associated with Halle, and Halle Family members and employees (see attached letter). These contributions total more than 40% of all contributions Haire has received in the last two reporting periods.”
As I did earlier this week, I’m calling on Jessica Haire to return the $251,900 in known contributions she received from the Halle Development Company, entities associated with Halle, and Halle Family members and employees. Unethical campaign contributions like this are part of the culture of corruption I am running against. One can only wonder how much the Halle’s have also contributed to the Washington based PAC Anne Arundel Forward, which is also part of the Haire swamp. Anne Arundel Forward PAC has no contribution limits, donor identities are kept secret, and it is supporting both Haire and Grasso by attacking me.
These “pay to play” contributions from out of county developers to Jessica Haire are a disgrace. The notion that Jessica Haire knew nothing about the connection between the Halle’s and their push for this dump when she accepted their $251,000 in campaign contributions indicates that she’s either too out of touch to be county executive or too unethical. No one believes contributions of this size just show up.”
It’s time to drain the swamp.”
