According to this story by Derek Simmonsen in the Columbia Flier, an ethics complaint has been filed against Liz Bobo for using her state office and email account to influence Columbia elections. The complaint stems from last years village elections in Wilde Lake. During that election Liz used her state delegate email account to politic on behalf of Phil Kirsch who was running for reelection to the Columbia Council against Linda Odum. Phil’s win in that election was largely credited to the assistance he received from Liz.
Liz used the same tactics in the 2007 village elections when fellow blogger Bill Santos attempted to unseat Kirsch.
Predictably, Liz claims she didn’t know she was doing anything wrong.
