Two fundraisers could face jail time

According to a lawsuit filed by the state prosecutor's office in Maryland, two officers of a Carroll County Republican Club could face hefty fines and possible jail time after being charged yesterday with violating state election laws for failing to register as a political action committee.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the club's president, Scott Hollenbeck, 40 and treasurer, Suzanne Primoff, 56, were charged with illegally raising and spending campaign funds as an unregistered political action committee. The offenses are punishable by up to two years in jail and $26,000 fines, according to court documents.
