It is difficult to believe that we are so limited on local crooks that we have to import them.

I'm not sure what you used as your data source, but Delegate Rice was born in a DC hospital but his family were residents of MD. The same is true of his two daughters that were born at Sibley hospital in DC.

Leg. aide to Del. Rice

Alex, I used Wikipedia. I realize that their residence of birth is not stated on Wikipedia, but just like any Democrat would do, I "embellished" the truth a little bit.

Who links to my website?
