Beside Rep. Cardin and former Rep. Mfume, who are the two real competitors in the race, there are 16 other names on the ballot in the Maryland Democratic senate primary. One of them is a guy named David Dickerson ...
WJZ.COM has learned police arrested David Dickerson, the Baltimore native running as a Democrat for the US Senate. He is charged with rape and assault.
Dickerson allegedly ordered a mail order bride from Latvia and repeatedly assaulted her.
Baltimore County police are investigating.
Doesn't look like he's going to be breaking out from the fringe candidate bunch.
Update: More details on the case over at TPMmuckraker from the Baltimore Police. Dickerson says his wife is "crazy in the head."
