Duncan might not have returned Abramoff's money

County Executive Doug Duncan doesn't appear to have returned $20,000 funneled to his campaign by crooked lobbyist Jack Abramoff, in what appears to have been a payoff for handing over public school property to Abramoff's private school.

According to the Washington Post, Duncan "plans to return the money" but apparently has not done so.

County Councilman Steve Silverman, who intends to succeed Duncan, supported the Abramoff scam. Let's see if the scandal affects his candidacy.
