Quick Clarification


Marc Shapiro’s article, “Ralph Jaffe Declares Gubernatorial Candidacy” (Nov. 22), was the best article ever written about the Jaffe Movement to get rid of all the corruption in Maryland politics. I would like to make a clarification pertaining to the number of votes I received and the money I spent on the votes.  Here are the facts for the two elections in which I ran for office. In the 2010 election for governor, I spent $450 and received 19,517 votes. In the 2012 election for U.S. Senate, I spent $280 and received 3,313 votes. For both elections combined, I spent $730 and received 22,830 votes. Per dollar, I received more votes for these two elections combined than anybody else running for elected public office. If elected, I am committed to giving the tax-payers of Maryland a 100 percent accounting of how every dollar is spent.
