Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

WJZ-TV – The campaign for governor has grown more heated as Governor Bob Ehrlich and Baltimore Mayor Martin O’Malley rolled out their latest campaign ads this week. Sherrilyn Ifill, JD, associate professor at the School of Law, sees pressure building as polls show the gap between the candidates narrowing. "Until we get past the primary and the voters are watching the general election it’s hard to know whether that gap will widen or not, but it makes perfect sense to me that this would be no cakewalk for O'Malley," said Ifill.

Bloomberg News – Five years after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3000 people, President George Bush’s administration is still struggling to put to use the $169 billion that Congress has since appropriated for homeland security. Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said homeland security officials have been slow to decide which chemicals and pathogens pose the greatest risk, blocking the way for meaningful research. "They’re not only doing nothing, but they’re interfering with the development of technology," Greenberger said.

Knight-Ridder (appeared in 23 newspapers) – Federal officials say they've disrupted at least 10 terrorist plots since Sept. 11 and played a role in the recent arrests in London. But critics contend that the domestic law enforcement agencies’ record is marred by inflated claims, mistaken arrests, and botched prosecutions. "What they've been able to find is people who are loosely talking about doing damage to the United States and, self-evidently, neither have the resources nor the intelligence, nor the money to carry these plots out," said Michael Greenberger, JD, professor at the School of Law and director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security.

The (Annapolis) Capital – Months from now, a federal judge will almost certainly have to decide whether Leeander Blake's confession of murder to Annapolis police should be allowed into evidence. "There is a chance that either a federal district judge or certainly the very conservative Fourth Circuit would view this case different than the Maryland Court of Appeals," said Andrew Levy, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law.

Professor Sherrilyn Ifill

The Baltimore Sun, WJZ-TV – Politicians are increasingly turning mistakes in positives by admitting their faults in campaign ads. Two examples cited are Maryland Comptroller William Donald Schaefer the former Baltimore City councilman, mayor and Maryland governor known for gruffly ordering underlings who has radio ads acknowledging that some of his recent comments have been offensive. The other example is former Congressman Kweisi Mfume whose troubled background has been described as a lesson for his adulthood. Sherrilyn A. Ifill, JD, an associate professor at the School of Law, said Mfume is sharing his inspirational story, saying, "‘Look at my journey.’ It also enables him to say, ‘Look how far I’ve come.’" Similarly, Ifill says the Schaefer ad demonstrates that he is continuing to learn and evolve as society changes.
