The article reports on a litigation associated with W. David Stoffregen, the former chief executive of mechanical contractor Poole and Kent Co. and former Maryland state Senator Thomas L. Bromwell. On April 10, 1999, the Maryland Senate adopted a resolution offering its "sincerest congratulations" to Stoffregen. Poole and Kent that year was acquired by specialty contracting giant Emcor Group Inc. The warm feelings between former Maryland state Senator Thomas L. Bromwell and Stoffregen would soon blossom into a wide-ranging scheme through which Bromwell and his wife Mary, received pay and favors for helping Poole and Kent, prosecutors claim.
