Deeply liberal Maryland -- where they tax, I kid you not, the rain -- has announced a tax revenue shortfall of $405 million. This news arrives in the middle of a gubernatorial election year and following years of tax hikes and casino openings which the state's Democratic establishment promised would solve the state's fiscal woes. 

So naturally the Washington Post shielded Democratic gubernatorial nominee Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown by burying the development at the bottom of page B3 of Thursday's Metro section in a story headlined, "Tax revenue forecasts are cut by $405 million."
