In his campaign website, Abrams links self to Subin

He brags on his website of his "political savvy," then boasts of his ties to the only local politician whom voters booted out of office last month: County Council Education Committee Chairman Michael Subin.

Steve Abrams, the Republican school board member who is running for the County Council's at-large seat, calls himself part of the Democratic team that's now leaving office. He says he wants to continue their legacy.

Abrams says on his homepage: "All of this has been accomplished because Doug Duncan, Mike Subin, Steve Silverman and Steve Abrams shared a vision. That vision has been implemented under the able leadership of Superintendent Jerry Weast and the collaborative efforts of the Board of Education, the County Executive and the County Council to make sure it was properly funded.

"Doug Duncan, Mike Subin and Steve Silverman are leaving office," the website says. And Steve is just the Republican to be their standard-bearer: "Montgomery County needs Steve Abrams on the County Council to make sure this effort is continued!"

Friends, is not making this up. Click to Abrams' website,, and see for yourself. (And no, it isn't a spoof website that we set up, but we might as well have. Though we'd have posted a more up-do-date picture of Steve.)
