Folks, how do these people keep getting back in office?

Our guess is by hook or by crook.

Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger faced plenty of controversy leading up to the primary. His soft stance on sexual assault crimes was brought into the spotlight, and it seemed like Shellenberger might go down in flames.

But then … the mail-in ballots appeared.

WJZ | CBS Baltimore on Twitter: “Incumbent Scott Shellenberger has held the seat for 16 years. Challenger Robbie Leonard was just 900 votes away from the incumbent at the week’s end, but on Monday the gap had grown to about 2,000 votes in Shellenberger’s favor. https://t.co/1aQmqe5iu5 / Twitter”

Amazing how those mail-in ballots seem to appear at the most advantageous times, isn’t it? (See 2000 Mules)

Now that he’s won the primary, this sorry excuse for a public servant made a beeline for ‘anywhere but work’ as reported by the Daily Record:

Bryan P. Sears on Twitter: “Following up on my report on Baltimore County State’s Scott Shellenberger and his absence from the office.https://t.co/pECTEhKuZ9 / Twitter”

Following up on my report on Baltimore County State’s Scott Shellenberger and his absence from the office.https://t.co/pECTEhKuZ9

Of course, lame liberal rag The Sun contradicted that report, spewing forth drivel about Shellenberger being in ‘constant contact’ with the office and taking issue with wording about a ‘leave of absence.’

Folks, no matter what you call it, Scott Shellenberger is forsaking his duties to the people of Baltimore County. But we guess that isn’t much different than the terrible job he’s been doing over the years.

And people wonder why we continue to call for DRAINING THE SWAMP.
