A Milford Mill man known for political protests involving putting toilets in front of a county government building in Towson has filed as a candidate for Lt. Governor in 2014.
Davis was charged in February 2011 with planting a fake destructive device in the form of a toilet outside the Historic Courthouse in Towson and making false statements about a fake destructive device. He was acquitted of those charges seven months later.
Davis, a caterer, said in a February 2013 article that the incident in 2011 was a protest of alleged corruption in Gov. Martin O'Malley's administration. He claims that he had made political statements using toilets previously, but the Towson incident was the only one in which he was accused of causing a bomb scare.
Harford County Executive David Craig and Frederick County Commissioner Blaine Young, both Republicans, are also considering runs for the office.
To date there are no Democrats who have filed though Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown is expected to make an announcement at an event on Friday.
