This came out of the O'Malley camp during his first run for mayor:
In light of this week’s endorsement of Mayor O'Malley for Governor from the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance, one key phrase seems to pop out from a packet of emails obtained previously by WBAL under a freedom of information request.
In a 2002 email sent from Max Curran’s Public Service Commission computer To Peter O'Malley's Baltimore City Government computer in respect the possibility of an Martin O'Malley run for governor in 2002, a line reads – Quote - “Who are these SOB politicians and so-called ministers who think they can pressure or push our boy around?".
Max Curran is the Mayor's brother-in-law and Peter O'Malley is the Mayor's brother.
