Republican lawmaker draws criticism after tweeting profanity in response to Maryland General Assembly leaders

March 28, 2022

A Republican lawmaker apologized Saturday for tweeting profanity in response to a tweet from Maryland General Assembly’s top leadership, stating she meant to privately send the message to a close friend. The social media exchange centers on a lawsuit filed last month that challenges a General Assembly-approved map of the state’s congressional districts. Senate President Bill Ferguson and House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones, both Democrats, released a joint statement Friday expressing disappointment in a Maryland judge’s decision to reject the map as “a product of extreme partisan gerrymandering.”
