FBI, IRS agents search Baltimore mayor’s homes, City Hall

 

Federal agents raided the homes and offices of Baltimore’s embattled mayor on Thursday amid widening probes to determine whether she used sales of her children’s books to disguise government kickbacks.

 

The searches pushed the latest political scandal for Maryland’s largest city to a crescendo after weeks of uncertainty and mounting pressure for Mayor Catherine Pugh to step down. Maryland’s governor joined calls for her resignation shortly after news broke of the raids, as agents with the FBI and the IRS criminal division carried boxes of evidence out of City Hall. Agents also searched her homes, her lawyer’s office, the home of an aide and a non-profit organization she was involved with, said Dave Fitz, an FBI spokesman.


Before she slipped out of sight more than three weeks ago, Pugh held a hastily organized press conference where she called her book deals a “regrettable mistake.”

I don’t know what she’s accused of but the way it’s playing out, I’m not betting on exoneration.

She wrote a children’s book and then people who paid a lot of money for a lot of books to put them in waiting rooms etc, wound up getting grants etc

 

shes been on medical leave since the story originally broke and refused to resign
