    Maryland's state prosecutor filed embezzlement charges against the treasurer of a Democratic political committee for Annapolis-area candidates, alleging she deposited more than $4,000 in campaign funds into a personal bank account and used the money for personal expenses. According to news reports, the political committtee known as the Team 30 Slate in 2014 included Maryland House Michael Busch and other Anne Arundel County candidates. According to the Daily Record, “'As soon as we felt as if something was wrong, we took it to the state board (of elections),' said (state) Sen. Sarah Elfret. The scheme unraveled after state elections officials noted deficiencies in three campaign filings leading up to and following the 2018 election."
