    A press release this afternoon by the Baltimore County Executive says the bill was drafted “in collaboration with the Inspector General” – a statement IG Kelly Madigan vehemently denies… Very few jurisdictions – and none on the federal level – give elected officials or others the right to appoint panels to review IG operations because such “oversight” is considered an inherent conflict of interest. The Association of Inspectors General says “best practices” call for an IG office free of political interference and policies enacted that ensure that whistleblowers as well as targets of investigations are not subject to retaliation or premature identification.
