Sketchy spending total rises in race for Baltimore mayor
Question of the Day
Questionable campaign expenditures by the father of Baltimore mayoral candidate Keiffer J. Mitchell Jr. were about $16,000 higher than previously reported, according to the latest campaign finance reports.
The reports, released Wednesday, show the Mitchell campaign is challenging 61 expenditures made by Dr. Keiffer J. Mitchell Sr., including 15 items that have come to the campaign’s attention since Dr. Mitchell resigned three weeks ago after reports that he spent $40,000 in campaign funds for personal expenses.
Of the other eight candidates running in the Democratic primary on Sept. 11, schools administrator Andrey Bundley raised nearly $56,000, with more than $15,000 left to spend, and Delegate Jill P. Carter had $8,110, according to the reports.
The winner of the Democratic primary will face Elbert R. Henderson, the lone Republican candidate.
In 2003, when the mayor was president of the City Council, she was forced to fire her sister after the city’s ethics board ruled her employment as a paid staff member violated city regulations. Questions were raised again last year after reports that Mrs. Dixon pushed for city contracts to a company that employed her sister. The ethics board cleared her of wrongdoing in that case.
Mr. Ulman, a Democrat, told the Baltimore Sun that the 62-year-old woman had cleaned his Maryland house for the past year and a half, had been recommended by a friend’s mother, had a married daughter in the community and had lived in the United States about 15 years.
“It never occurred to me” that she was not a legal resident, he said.
Mr. Ulman said he asked the woman about her status in response to a reporter’s inquiry, and she acknowledged that she was in the country illegally.
