Slate committees and Maryland disclosure

The Post notes a disclosure issue in a local race in Maryland here.

The campaign of former state delegate Rushern L. Baker III received $206,000 on Jan. 13 from a slate — a group of candidates raising money collectively — called County 1 Now. The slate had been established about a week before, and because it was so new, disclosure of its donors was not required in last month’s campaign finance filing, a state election official said. The next finance filing is in August. Baker is running in the Democratic primary on Sept. 14.
