Newsmax reports that in the Maryland governor’s race, many signs for GOP candidate Bob Ehrlich have been removed from private property. Homeowners who witnessed the removal of signs on their property say that state employees acting on orders of Maryland’s governor, Martin O’Malley (D), removed the signs and told the homeowners that they had been ordered to do so by Governor O’Malley’s Administration and been paid overtime to do so. O’Malley denies ordering the state workers to remove the signs.
