$1,000,000 in Taxpayer Funds for CASA?

H/T to Richard Falknor

SB 90 has a $1 million dollar appropriation for CASA, the Central American Solidarity Association to build a multicultural center. Andy Harris' floor amendment to strip the funding from the appropriation failed 29-16.

In a related matter the usual suspects on the House Judiciary Committee pulled their typical race baiting stunts with supporters of stricter enforcement of immigration laws.

Dear Red Maryland Readers,

My name is Steve Hudson, and I am the Republican Nominee running against DCCC Chair Chris Van Hollen in Maryland's 8th District, who is also looking to get other Democrats elected across the country. I need your help!!!! While my opponent supports the non-profit of choice for illegal immigrants, I am strong on enforcing immigration laws.

Our campaign is having a massive online fundraiser on March 25th. We are trying to raise $25,000 in a single day. We are asking for a $25 contribution or more, and for each contributor to email 10 or more friends and invite them to contribute. Our website is www. Can any of you help me or point me in the right direction? Red Maryland would be one of our campaign's greatest resource for an online fundraiser like this. Please help!

Would any of you be willing to send an email to your Maryland email base, including friends and family, extending an invitation from me to contribute online at on Maryland Day, March 25th? Any donations would be extaordinarily helpful and much appreciated! Even if you can't send the invitation to contribute, can you invite your members to simply visit my website on March 25th? We need volunteers too!

Thank you!

Very Respectfully,

Steve Hudson
