Lt. Gov. Brown testifies in Ulysses Currie's bribery trial
BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown has testified that he considers state Sen. Ulysses Currie a mentor and a man of strong integrity.
Brown testified on Monday in Currie's federal bribery trial. Currie, a Democrat who represents Prince George's County, is charged with using his position to benefit the Shoppers Food Warehouse supermarket chain. He was paid more than $245,000 by Shoppers between 2003 and 2007.
Brown says Currie never told him that he was a paid consultant for Shoppers. He also detailed how he came to know Currie in 1994 as the campaign manager for Currie's senate campaign. Brown is the latest in a string of defense witnesses who vouched for Currie's honesty.
Currie's defense argues he only worked as a consultant and did nothing illegal.
