Joel Todd Caught Telling the BIG LIE!

Worcester County State’s Attorney Joel Todd has decided that winning re-election is far more important than behaving in an ethical manner. Running behind in his bid for another term, Todd recently sent out a series of mailings to voters in Worcester County. In them he displays people as “supporters” who either are not supporting his bid for re-election or had not given their permission.

Todd’s behavior is worse than that of Rep. Frank Kratovil (D-MD) or the DCCC. We can only infer from Todd’s behavior that desperation will cause this man to say or do almost anything.

Worcester County Commissioner Bud Church doesn’t support Todd’s bid, but is pictured as a “community leader” who supports Joel Todd. In an interview with the Ocean Pines Independent, Todd claims to have the endorsement of OPA Director Ray Unger. Unger is adamant in his support for Todd’s opponent – Beau Oglesby. Berlin Police Chief Arnold Downing has been dismissed as an election judge because of Todd’s scurrilous actions. Both Downing and the Worcester County Board of Elections informed Todd that Downing COULD NOT be listed on any campaign material because of Downing’s volunteer position as a Chief Election Judge. Of course, this doesn’t matter to someone as egocentric as Todd. He needs to claim law enforcement endorsements, even if they don’t exist, due to Oglesby’s endorsement by all three Worcester County FOP lodges as well as the Maryland Fraternal Order of Police.

If there was ever a question as to whether Joel Todd deserves re-election, the matter seems settled. The citizens of Worcester County deserve better than a State’s Attorney that has shown he will say or do anything to win a political campaign. Such behavior would be bad enough from your run of the mill office seeker. However, a State’s Attorney (like a county Sheriff) has the power to deprive citizens of their property and liberty. How safe can one feel with a man like Joel Todd holding that kind of power?

I wonder if anyone would have really made an issue out of this if not for JT? I know for a fact that alot of people are sick and tired of his hate filled posts and comments directed to a few candidates.
If Joel Todd loses, he will have JT, SB, BB and LD to thank. Whenever reading on JT's blog you get the impression that's it not anything more than a lot of hate filled rants. I think alot of people don't want to associate themselves with Joel Todd due to his association with those people.

Speaking of JT, I just got an amusing email from a friend wondering how JT and company will twist this around and it will somehow be all Mike McDermott's fault!

Amen 1:12. I've talked to several people who have changed their vote to Oglesby just because of the JT lies!!!

CLEARLY JT isn't doing all of the writing on his Blog. Billy & Stephanie Burke are participating and JT is stupid enough to post their articles under his name. Now THAT gives you a whole lot more to think about, doesn't it. Did you actually believe Jonathan Taylor could wrtite more than two lines of anything and actually spell it correctly.

Speaking of Jonathan Taylor, just saw this! How Ironic for both of them.

Also Joe, most of the ANON comments are coming from the Burke's also. That's not been lost on too many people either.

I'd like to know who the clown is that's trying to discredit me and my comments about Joel's actions. Free speech is one thing but posting slanderous comments without owning up to them is another.

It is very important for all to know that JT and Mr.Todd's current wife worked together and have been friends for years. Explains A LOT.

How about putting the bs campaign tactics aside from both candidates and evaluate the experience they each offer. I think it's a no brainer who the best man is for the job, hands down. Beau , you might make a good SA one day, but go get some experience somewhere else and come back later.

The Burkes have spewed hate rants for as long as I can remember. Both ran for public office and failed terribly. It really gets to me how they continue to attack McDermott over and over again and yet they do not even live in Pocomoke anymore. They whine about any and everything the city or Mike does but fail to mention their mountain of unpaid bills, rundown property and complete ignorance of common laws. Billy has been the author of more schemes and shady deals than anybody will ever know.

Hey Billy, instead of sitting on your lazy $&% and typing rants about pot holes and painters, why don't you do something to contribute to the community? Why don't you pay some of your bills? Or better yet, just go live your life somewhere else and leave decent public servants alone. You make me and 95% of the great citizens in Pocomoke sick to our stomachs.

anonymous 9:22, here's the funny part. the Burke's now live in Wyoming.

Craig, don't sweat those idiots. It is far to easy for people who do nothing but complain and point fingers to target decent individuals like yourself. They think public servants are in it for money (guess they've never seen a cops pay stub) and they have no respect for what you chose to do with your life. I'm in the active Army and I put my life on the line for every citizen in this country... but people like that certainly make it tougher to do.

Joe, too bad they still have internet access... it won't be long until they default on more loans and head somewhere else... hopefully somewhere with less bandwidth :)

The bill collectors tracked them down in Rancho Mirage CA. Check case search.

Just saw the piece on TV. What a gentleman-he threw his wife under the bus for this one! She's taking the heat for him. Not even man enough to take responsibility for his actions. Sounds like Joel Todd is the first one in Worcester County that needs to be held accountable for his actions!

My apologies. I fixed the problem.

Well, Mayor McDermott said "Why don't you just move.......".

They left....but none to soon.

I do not feel safe with Joel Todd as our States Attorney here in Wicomico County. I assume Worcester County did not want him. I completely understand but now we have this evil man in Wicomico County Circuit Court. He is a liar and has ruined many innocent people's lives. He has no remorse for anyone or any of his actions. It is a terrible thing that this mentally unstable man has the power that he does. Someone please help us all. Someone please get this man down off his power job and he needs to reflect. I can't believe he still has his position and is continually ruining innocent peoples lives. Please help!!
