Annapolis, MD—This week, Andy Harris was criticized by the former president of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science for still doubting the existence of climate change in 2018, he lost a televised debate to Jesse Colvin, he was scrambling to respond after Maryland Democrats filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics about his failure to report significant spousal income on his financial disclosure form, and The Post reported that he has paid his wife more than $130,000 from his campaign accounts—oof!
Today, after Harris claimed that there are “different projections” and “differing analysis” on climate change, former University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science president Dan Boesch called the Congressman’s doubts “bogus,” adding that “there’s no credible scientific debate about this.” Read more here.
During a Thursday night debate on Cecil TV, Harris was unable to answer for his failure to stand up to Big Pharma: “I don’t know how I could stand here with integrity if I was in the back pocket of Big Pharma. Mr. Harris has taken hundreds of thousands of dollars from Big Pharma.” Read more here.
On Wednesday, Harris scrambled to explain why he failed to report more than $26,000 in spousal income on his 2017 financial disclosures, including thousands of dollars that his own campaign paid his wife, after Democrats filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics. In their reporting of Democrats’ complaint, the Washington Post also reported that Harris has paid his wife more than $130,000 since 2014. Read more here.
Andy Harris had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week.
