    Wandering Eye: Anne Arundel County's checkered voting history, before Baltimore embraced Poe, and more
    Today's celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. gives good reason to consider Maryland's electoral history in the era of this country's civil-rights struggle, along with a contemporary fact: that a majority of Anne Arundel County's wealthy, largely white, well-educated electorate in the Fifth Councilmanic District last fall handed victory to Michael Anthony Peroutka, a paleo-conservative Christian secessionist with white-supremacist ties. In the 1968 presidential election, more than a fifth of Anne Arundel's votes went to Southern segregationist George Wallace of the American Independent Party, which was later subsumed by the Constitution Party, of which Peroutka was the presidential candidate in 2004. And in 1972's Democratic presidential party, Wallace won Anne Arundel with more than 51 percent of the vote in an 11-way race, and took the Free State overall, with about 40 percent of the vote. Those were different times, but despite demographic and political changes since, Anne Arundel's Fifth District voters have shown how King's civil-rights message still finds pockets of outspoken resistance in Maryland, and thus needs renewed attention.
