Howard County Politics: News about Delegate Terri Hill getting fined for joining Zoom legislative meetings from operating room gets media coverage across the nation

The news coverage about Delegate Terri Hill getting reprimanded and fined by the Maryland State Board of Physicians is getting more than just local or statewide coverage. Here are some of the examples I have seen (mostly from Twitter posts)
