Harassment charges, filed December 15th in Allegany County District Court, against District 1-B Delegate Jason Buckel have been dropped. The charges were from, according to the Cumberland Times-News, a Maryland State Trooper, who is a boyfriend of Buckel’s estranged wife. The charges state that Buckel had been sending him threatening messages through Facebook Messenger, including asking the trooper to stay away from his family. For his part, Delegate Buckel says it is a private matter. However, at least one member of the House of Delegates is seeking his removal as Minority Leader. Wicomico County Delegate Christopher Adams, a Republican, has sent a letter to the House, stating his intention to seek the leadership role. Adams has neither denied whether the messages occurred, nor has he denied the content of those messages.
