Disbarred Attorney/Delegate Prevails In Court

Is this Maryland politics as usual? An attorney who is disbarred (from his involvement in a real estate deal no less) becomes a rel estate agent and a State Delegate. He is charged with scamming a woman out of her home and claims he is doing “the Lord’s work“.

So when the verdict comes down, Tony did nothing wrong and has to pay this woman $28,000 for the loss of her home, plus $6,000 in other damages. But the woman is penalized $23,000 for breaking her contract. Tony owes $11,000.

But this year, Delegate Tony sponsored legislation (which failed) that would postpone any legal actions against lawmakers due to the legislative session.  Does anyone else see this as slimy politics? This is an abuse of power and the height of audacity.

The voterts of District 33A need to take note of how much Tony McConkey did to represent THEM and comnpare it to how much he represented HIMSELF! The elections will be here soon enough and let the voters decide.

As to this case, I wonder if the woman has the ability to appeal?
