Who you gonna believe: the Gov or your own two eyes?

Ehrlich's Hirings, Firings Reached Deep Into Ranks -- Sunday's Washington Post:

"Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R) has denied Democrats' accusations that he fired workers for partisan reasons.

"Ehrlich's top advisers have said they fired 284 workers. That number, they say, is modest compared with what occurred when his predecessor, Parris N. Glendening (D), took office in 1995, replacing fellow Democrat William Donald Schaefer.

"But Ehrlich has overseen the dismissal of four times as many workers as Glendening, according to state personnel chief Andrea Fulton, who reviewed state records at the request of The Washington Post. She said Glendening fired 65 workers during the first three years of his administration.

".. . In many cases, the workers resigned, retired or were demoted after they were told that they would be fired."
