Tommy Bromwell's Prison Sentence Could End Early 2013

Former state senator is completing an 84 month sentence in federal prison for racketeering, conspiracy and filing a false tax return.

Former State Sen. Thomas Bromwell could be released from prison as early as February.

Bromwell, 63, is serving the last nine months of an 84-month sentence for racketeering, conspiracy and filing a false tax return at the Federal Correctional Institution at Morgantown West Virginia.

By law, a federal prisoner is eligible for release at any point in the last year of their sentence, according to Chris Burke, a spokesman for the federal Bureau of Prisons.

But Bromwell, who was sentenced in November 2007, could come home before completing his full term in August 2013.

Del. Eric Bromwell said Thursday that his father could be home as soon as February.

"That's subject to possible change, but that's what we're hoping," said Bromwell.

Thomas Bromwell served in the Maryland Senate for two decades representing the Perry Hall and Parkville area and was chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. He was found guilty of using his influence to secure a multi-million dollar state contract and intervene in business disputes on behalf of Poole & Kent, a contractor. 

In return, the contractor provided a no-show job for Mary Patricia Bromwell, the senator's wife and paid her nearly $193,000. The contractor also performed more than $80,000 work on the Bromwell's home.

Mary Patricia Bromwell received a one year and one day sentence for federal mail fraud related to a minority-contracting fraud scheme.

David Stoffregen, a Towson resident and president of Poole & Kent, was also convicted of racketeering conspiracy, mail fraud and filing a false tax return.

Six others also pleaded guilty to charges related to the federal investigation.

Burke, the federal prison spokesman, said he could not confirm Thomas Bromwell's exact date of release. So far, the former state senator has earned more than 216 days credit toward shortening his sentence.

Thomas Bromwell could be transferred to a half-way house or be given home confinement, Burke said.

You said that once. For you so that you understand, he may be in a government position, like the appointments of police officers and other such positions but he is not elected. http://www.ehow.com/about_6555425_elected-vs_-appointed-local-government.html I like the first paragraph about animal control officer. Maybe he can handle that job that cleans favorite word you use, you know the one in pre-K.
Steve November 02, 2012 at 11:10 PM
You figured that out all by yourself?? Damn! give yourself a Gold Star Beeker! The most powerful people in politics never hold an elected office.
Buzz Beeler November 02, 2012 at 11:19 PM
They don't teach economics in pre-K. How many names you come with today. I would say you are the most disliked poster on this site. You have to create AKA's just to have friends.
Steve November 02, 2012 at 11:22 PM
I doubt very seriously that you have ever taken a course in Economics in your life.
Buzz Beeler November 02, 2012 at 11:29 PM
Tell us about those three college degrees you hold and six languages you speak? What are the names of the schools? What languages do you speak? Where did you get your engineering degree from? I won't get on verifiable answer and you can take that to the bank. VERIFIABLE AS IN PROF?
Steve November 03, 2012 at 12:07 AM
What in the world are you talking about?? I have an undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from Purdue , an MBA and a MAS. What degrees do you have??
Buzz Beeler November 03, 2012 at 12:41 AM
Scan a copy of upload it to Patch of your degrees. That will show just how or what your are. A man with that kind of background would not be in the basement doing whatever you do. You don't even have a last name so how can you have a degree in anything. It would seem to me that you would be proud to tell people that. I do recall you talking about working shift work one time. People like you don't come out of Purdue, trust me F/S/F and whoever else. If you want you can e-mail them to me and black out your last name. How hard is that to do for a man from Purdue. My website has my e-mail address. I'll be waiting and remember your post, time and date for future reference. Now let's see you put up or go hide for a week.

I am sure Governor O'Malley has a job waiting for him. Secretary of Gaming?
Steve November 03, 2012 at 03:16 AM
Buzz, You are Retarded. The Union you belonged to offered Educational reimbursement as part of your compensation package. You were too stupid to take advantage of it...
Steve November 03, 2012 at 03:22 AM
39 years playing Cop without a promotion. Ran for office and the FOP endorsed his competitor. The BCPD know a Clown when they see one.
Buzz Beeler November 03, 2012 at 04:17 AM
Hey Steve, where are your copies of your degrees? You have my e-mial address. What just more mouth? At least I had a job. Small c on Clown. At least I ran for office. All you do is run and hide like what your are. It just eats away at you that you turned out the way you did. I refused the FOP endorsement by the way. Your the mouth and you ran it. So where are they? Another con and falsehood Steve like the rest of your life built on fantasy. What ever I did it's there and it's not 39 and small c on "Cop." Mr. Purdue grad, it's Thirty nine. With all those degrees you should know that. I'm proud of what I have done and all you do is run your mouth and hide. Go back to your sandbox nap time is coming. What are FiFA, and Frank along with the others going say when thy find out you did exactly what I said you would do. I was right on target again. How hard can it be to e-mail a copy of your degrees Steve?
FIFA November 03, 2012 at 04:35 AM
You want to bring me into this fight Buzzard. You have no degree. You read your resume lately? You are an uneducated fool my boy.
AllStar November 03, 2012 at 06:00 AM
Steve and FIFA are clearly either active communists or simply useful idiots (as Marx called them). Buzz, it's not hard to get degrees from Universities that are run by Communists. I had to practically pretend I was one to get mine or at least hide my conservative values as much as possible. Schools today teach socialism, feminism, homosexuality, environmentalism, humanism, nihilism, etc. Except for homeschooling and some religious schools, the Communists control the entire educational system in this country.
Buzz Beeler November 03, 2012 at 12:54 PM
AllStar thanks for your comment. Steve and FIFA are all the same. They comment with the same name. They have nothing. They are afraid to reveal anything because they can't. I have a website with everything on it. They can't stand when someone has something they don't. They never back anything up except run their mouth. Yes FIFA/Steve/Frank and who ever else, I "red" [sic] my resume. Where is yours? You have NONE! At least I have one and don't run and hide into a hole. F/S/F are nobodies. You have nothing except what I and the middle class gives you. Without people like me you would starve to death. If I'm wrong they prove it with documents. I have all mine framed. I didn't bring you into this. Whatever Steve was cooking that night did. Why else would he flat at say what he has done. FIFA you have nothing but another ugly picture and a mouth that spouts nothing of substance. You and Steve are why this country is headed south. Ever see the Oscar nominated documentary "Inside Deal?" Until you and your whatever can put up something of substance you will never achieve what I have accomplished, with or without a degree. At least I'm for real and not just an ugly painting.
Steve November 03, 2012 at 01:23 PM
Yadda Yadda Yadda....... If I had an inferiority Complex like you do I would probably fear the Brown Man too. Thankfully, I don't.
Homer November 03, 2012 at 01:33 PM
the bar is an eyesore - and what is that other building ?
Buzz Beeler November 03, 2012 at 01:58 PM
Just as I predicted nothing from Steve, big bad Steve. Color has nothing to do with it, accountability, truthfulness and character does, all of which you don't have. I don't have a complex, I have creditability. Remember I'm a writer and retired cop. You can't testify on the stand or write on someone without it. So it seems I have everything you want and can't posses. That's what this is all about. You can't stand what you are and because I have something you can't achieve you can't deal with it. Color means nothing to me. Issues, the truth and law do.
FIFA November 03, 2012 at 02:05 PM
Clearly this useful idiot was not indoctrinated as you appear to be a useless idiot.
FIFA November 03, 2012 at 02:08 PM
Blah Blah Blah, you are a self indulgent blowhard that thinks he has accomplished something. Ooh, you have a website. Ooh, you took classes at a community college. Go get educated Buzzard. You have accomplished not a single notable achievement. I'm FIFA, don't know who Steve is which also makes you a very poor former cop.
FIFA November 03, 2012 at 02:09 PM
Color means nothing to you?? You would be the first white cop hired in the 60s that felt that way. You are a liar.
RARE MARYLAND INDEPENDENT November 03, 2012 at 02:46 PM
Buzz - why do you even bother to have a dialog with these folks? They have nothing to add, other than anger toward anyone who has accomplished anything. Don't stoop to their level. Let them continue to live in their sad world.
FIFA November 03, 2012 at 02:55 PM
RMI, you are absolutely right. I could care less about Buzz until he drops my name in a conversation with Steve like he did above. He has this phobia that he thinks Steve and I are one and the same. We are not.
Buzz Beeler November 03, 2012 at 04:03 PM
No phobia just what is posted. There is much more. _____________________________________________________ Frank/FIFA/Steve also commented on Obama-Romney Final Presidential Debate: Who Won?. "You just better knock it off this second Buzz. Do you know who you are messing with? Are you blogging at me? Are you blogging at me? You think just because you have a job and I am in mom's basement you can push me around? Not a chance. You think you are better than me because you earned a paycheck and I pay for my cheetos with my ebt card?" [sic] To respond view the comment on Patch. You received this email because you commented on Obama-Romney Final __________________________________________________________ Also this: Hi Buzz Beeler, Frank/FIFA/Steve also commented on Obama-Romney Final Presidential Debate: Who Won?. "Actually kittens I am just a parody of you. I could not contain myself after I came here for the shopping reviews and saw you controlling each and every thread by posting with numerous different accounts. Ps kittens. Those with history in literature and writing can tell forensic give aways of writing/posting styles. I know that I am gay but i am not an imbecile." To respond view the comment on Patch. _______________________________________________ They have now seemed to have disappeared. Real class acts. FIFA never posted one attack on Steve for using this AKA.
Steve November 03, 2012 at 04:23 PM
ROTFLMAO For the Love of Pete!!! Fran/FIFA/Steve was a hoax that some poster initiated to make you look like the Fool you are. (Or even a bigger Fool then Tamika made you out to be) Neither FIFA nor myself has anything to do with it
Buzz Beeler November 03, 2012 at 04:51 PM
Rare Ind. Voter, I posted a comment to yours but it has not come up yet. Don't know why it shows in my profile page. Thanks for your support. This gives me something to do at my age. At least I'm not bored. Thanks again.
moe green November 03, 2012 at 11:36 PM
Buzz beeper. Did no police work and did not make an arrest the last 15 years of his career. He rode a desk. A self important blowhard.
Buzz Beeler November 04, 2012 at 01:04 AM
And what is a moe green? Moe nothing and green mold that causes bad things. I rather be a somebody than a nobody with a name like moe green. Sounds like a weed. This blowhard puts out some good exclusive blogs. What do you do shine the chief's shoes?
Buzz Beeler November 04, 2012 at 01:12 AM
Just like working on the Purdue chicken farm Robert. Still waiting to see the MBA from Purdue without the chickenfeed. It's fried like everything else you do. By the way who is Love of Pete? Never heard of him. A Purdue grad knows proper nouns. As Far as Tamika goes. Tony is no longer around and I'm still here and so is Tamika. The EEOC will decide that one. I never heard of Fool either. Friend of yours from the Purdue farm. It just eats away at you when you run your lips then you can't back it up doesn't it Robert/Steve.
mary finkelstein November 05, 2012 at 06:15 PM
You have made many good points--I do agree with you. We should wait and see what he does with his life from this point on--I wish him well.
