Ads in Baltimore state’s attorney race were funded by family of Sinclair Broadcast Group chairman

September 1, 2022

The family of a broadcast television company that has supported Thiru Vignarajah for political office used a super PAC to provide him with hundreds of thousands of dollars of extra support in his losing bid to become Baltimore’s next state’s attorney, new campaign disclosures show. Four members of the Smith family, who are associated with Hunt Valley-based Sinclair Broadcast Group, were joined by Orioles chairman and CEO John Angelos and a lawyer in donating a combined $220,000 to a group that spent the money on ads promoting Vignarajah just before he lost the July primary to Ivan Bates.
