ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Newly released documents show that Anne Arundel County Executive John Leopold directed members of his security detail to pick up an Abraham Lincoln costume for him for a President's Day event, retrieve his girlfriend from the airport and to drop off citations at private functions.
State prosecutors are considering allegations that Leopold had members of his security detail do tasks related to his re-election campaign. Leopold has admitted having officers do errands for him while he was recuperating from back surgery, but he has denied wrongdoing. He says the accusations are politically motivated.
Leopold spokesman David Leopold says it's common for members of the staff to help out with routine tasks.
The documents were reported by The Baltimore Sun and Annapolis Capital, which obtained copies of Leopold's schedule.
