Google Picks Up MCRG/Duchy NOW Story

One thing about the Internet is that it moves FAST. Our report on Maryland Citizens for a Responsible Government's (MCRG) allegations about Council Member Duchy Trachtenberg's mishandling of money at Maryland NOW is only a few hours old, but it is already fifth on Trachtenberg's first Google search page.

Now is the time that likely voters are paying attention and making up their minds on how they will vote. One way they do that is to enter a candidate's name in Google. When they do, they often end up on MPW, and that is one reason why our site traffic is currently at all-time highs.

If you are a candidate and voters find this when they Google your name, well... you don't want to be that candidate.
