Police Picket Ervin Fundraiser (Update)

Last night, the Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 35 picketed Council Member Valerie Ervin's fundraiser in Downtown Silver Spring. It's one thing for the police to picket Nancy Navarro or Nancy Floreen, but it's quite another for them to picket a twenty-five year veteran of the labor movement like Ervin. Still, Ervin supported furloughs along with the rest of the council.

Council Member Duchy Trachtenberg, who has changed her position to reject all county employee union support, prepares to cross the picket line.

Update: We hear other politicians crossed the picket line too. Trachtenberg is the only one for whom we have a photograph.
