Maryland Investigating Robocalls Made in Support of Michael Peroutka’s Campaign for County Council

Who made the potentially illegal robocalls? Watch this investigative report by WUSA:Another interesting aspect of this report is Michael Peroutka's spokesperson: Peter Waldron. "Councilman Peroutka's policy is not to comment on ongoing investigations," said Peroutka spokesman Peter Waldron in an email to WUSA9. Could this be the same Peter Waldron that worked for Michele Bachmann's failed run for the Republican nomination for president in 2012?  … [Read more...]

In the Fall of 2013, the founder and director of the Institute on the Constitution Michael Peroutka made some outrageous claims regarding Martin Luther King, Jr. First, on the Steve Deace Show, Peroutka said King did not call for civil rights for blacks in his "I Have a Dream" speech.
