Maryland Lawmakers Prepared to Take Their Tax Credits Back From House of Cards

Oh, Maryland, you're so funny:

Members of the Maryland House of Delegates are still stewing over a threat from the “House of Cards” producers to leave the state if they don’t get millions more dollars in tax credits.

So on Thursday afternoon, delegates issued a threat of their own: Sure, go ahead, leave this beautiful place that’s brimming with dedicated workers. But if you do that, state officials might use eminent domain to purchase, condemn or somehow seize your sets, equipment and other property.

The show has netted $26.6 million in tax credits over two seasons so far and seeks $15 million for season 3. In typical DC fashion, Kevin Spacey has already been shilling in Annapolis.

It's unlikely Maryland would actually seize the show's stuff, as the state Senate is probably going to cough up more credits.
