Cavey: Huff Should Be Treated Fairly

The former head of the Republican party in Baltimore County says Councilman Todd Huff should receive the same treatment given to a former councilmember arrested for drunken driving.

The former head of the Baltimore County Republican Central Committee says Councilman Todd Huff shouldn't resign his seat.

and charged with drunken driving-related offenses after an intoximeter test showed his blood alcohol level to be more than twice the legal limit, according to court records.

In 2009, Chris Cavey, then the chairman of the county party, called for the resignation of then Councilman Sam Moxley following the Catonsville Democrat's second drunken driving arrest.

But Moxley didn't resign and was not forced out of office. He ultimately decided not to run for re-election in 2010.

Cavey said that set the bar for how all County Councilmembers should be treated.

"I think everybody was lenient with [Moxley] the second time around," Cavey said. "this is Todd's first time around. I think all councilmembers should be treated equally regardless of party. Let's see if they are.

"Deep down in my soul, I believe they should be treated equally," said Cavey, whose job once was to be "the most partisan Republican in Baltimore County."

Now, three years removed from that post, Cavey said he's not "calling for [Huff's] head."

"If they cut Moxley a break, they should give Todd a break," Cavey said.

Tony, this is pretty much my view on the political situation in the country as well. One party is terrible, the other even worse. Human rights and social policy ultimately tend to tip me towards the Dems, however it doesn't prevent me from voting against them on referendums such as the gambling referendum or the "Dream" Act. People who are purely one side or the other - these are the people who seriously scare me. You have to be a special kind of ignorant (I'll be polite here) to fall into this category.

Just par for the course for these self-righteous clowns.

Buck I wrote and produced a whole traffic safety program slide presentation on the same subject. This young girl got into her friends car. Her friend was drunk and she killed a child. The passenger said she felt so bad she would never again in her life get into a vehicle with a drunk driver and guess what? She did! Now she to is dead.

Amazing the amount of stupidity among the enlightened. He did not make a one time poor choice number one, first cop rule, this was not there first time, just there first time getting caught. Secondly he operates under the belief he is above the law because of his circle of influence, which in all honesty works well in the hands of a skilled manipulator. Obviously at twice the legal limit quick thinking is not so quick ,so with lower brain function survival mode kicks in hence Chief of police. Unfortunately for some we are seeking a new view on our world and the ancient way all of us still view?? our fellow humans. If you believe the idea of privilege and special treatment are a foundation for success you truly have no concept of integrity.
