Wow! For the first time in a long time a real Democratic leader in Carroll County! Representative Chris Van Holland brings fresh air to the stale, squabbling, anti-women's rights Republicans and a bumbling Republican Sheriff, who even I thought was above the mickey mouse games that allowed an alleged murderer to go free without trial, the lack of closure piling more grief on the murder victim's family.
