(Washington Times) Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler said Thursday he "probably should have done more" to determine whether alcohol was present at a teen house party he briefly stopped by this summer, a retreat from his previously defiant stance that he had no "moral authority" to intervene.
The admission came during a news conference held to address a report in the Baltimore Sun that the gubernatorial candidate was present at the party in June at a beach house in South Bethany, Del.
Mr. Gansler said he stopped in to tell his son what time they were leaving in the morning. A photo shows the Democrat at the party, and several teens who attended told The Sun that the gathering involved underaged drinking.
