Hogan ‘Pouring Gasoline’ on a Fire to Bolster His White House Hopes, Franchot Says
Comptroller Peter V.R. Franchot (D) accused Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr. (R) on Wednesday of using false and divisive rhetoric about law enforcement funding to propel his presidential hopes. Hogan, seated just inches away at the bimonthly meeting of the Board of Public Works, bluntly rejected the charges. The back-and-forth came out of nowhere, as police funding was not on the board’s agenda.
