Sen. Ed Reilly breached standards of conduct for threatening retaliation against Severna Park woman, ethics panel finds

March 4, 2022

A General Assembly ethics committee found that Sen. Ed Reilly broke with the standards of the body when he told a constituent he was planning to pull a bill on which they both had worked because she donated to his opponent’s campaign. The constituent, Pam Jeter, received word of the decision Tuesday in a letter from the General Assembly’s Joint Committee on Legislative Ethics. The committee sent “a letter of education and advice” to the senator, then dismissed the complaint after deciding further proceedings were not necessary.
