Sen. Currie's wife takes responsibility at corruption trial
BALTIMORE (AP) - The wife of state Sen. Ulysses Currie has testified that she is responsible for the mistakes on her husband's financial disclosure forms.
The Rev. Shirley Gravely-Currie testified on Thursday at her husband's federal corruption trial that she filled out the forms nearly every year. She said she never intended to hide anything and also said her husband didn't ask her to.
She said that she had misinterpreted the questions.
Sen. Currie is charged with using his former position as chairman of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee to benefit the Shoppers Food Warehouse supermarket chain. He was paid more than $245,000 by Shoppers between 2003 and 2007.
During the trial, prosecutors have focused on the fact that Currie never disclosed the payments from Shoppers on his financial disclosure forms.
