Del. Alston to face biweekly financial, timekeeping reviews

Del. Tiffany Alston is racking up the grand jury indictments and, come the 2012 General Assembly session, she'll be operating under added scrutiny. "While it is important to remember that Delegate Alston has not been convicted of a crime, I believe that the allegation of theft of state dollars warrants an immediate response to assure the public that legislative funds are being used appropriately by those who have been entrusted with them," House Speaker Michael E. Busch, D-Anne Arundel, said in a statement Thursday afternoon. He said the Department of Legislative Services will conduct biweekly reviews of Alston's legislative account and will verify the timesheets of her legislative staffers.
