Maryland Gov. Hoganís former chief of staff offers investigating legislators no explanation for severance, expenses


Maryland lawmakers were again frustrated with more questions than answers Wednesday, as the governorís former chief of staff responded to a subpoena requiring him to testify but said little to shed light on a six-figure payout he received from his prior state job.

Roy McGrath resigned as the governorís top aide in August, four days after The Baltimore Sun reported that he received more than $238,000 when he left the Maryland Environmental Service to join Hoganís team.
