In Baltimore, and in every city run by Democrat-Socialist grifters.
Federal officials searched Mayor Catherine E. Pugh’s home and City Hall office Thursday in the midst of her children’s book scandal. Reports told us that Maryland health providers paid Pugh hundreds of thousands of dollars for her self-published “Healthy Holly” children’s books.
Gov. Larry Hogan called for an investigation into the matter and the FBI is now very involved.
Pugh took an indefinite leave of absence last month due to what she claimed were health issues.
Ace explains further:
She made these books available. To, for example, health care providers looking to sign lucrative contracts with the city of Baltimore.
And you won’t believe this –health care providers looking to sign lucrative contracts with the city of Baltimore bought tens of thousands of copies of this self-published book, putting a great deal of money in the mayor’s pockets, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars.
UMMS bought the most — 100,000 copies for a sweet half mil.
Why did the UMMS buy so many of these books?
Well, I don’t want to speculate unduly, but it might have something to do with the fact that the Children’s Author Pugh sat on the UMMS’ board.
The Baltimore Sun discovered that nine of the UMMS’ board members had entered into “business relationships” with the UMMS. I wonder what other tax-payer subsidized graft for politicians we’ll be discovering.
And now, the FBI takes a pause from chasing down the Steele Dossier and covering up Hillary Clinton’s crimes to do actual work, searching Mayor Pugh’s home and city hall office for evidence of crimes.
The FBI, going after a Demonrat? Well, I must say I never saw THAT coming. But now we come to the funniest part.
BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Where is Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh? It’s the question buzzing around the city as the FBI and IRS raid Pugh’s home, City Hall and several other locations tied to her Thursday. But, no one has seen the mayor even though she’s supposed to be recovering from pneumonia.
An earlier report said she may have been trying to get out of town, but attorney Steve Silverman spoke to the WJZ outside her home Thursday and said the mayor is physically ill and emotionally saddened.
I’ll bet she is at that.
He said she apologized for letting down the people of Baltimore with any appearance of wrongdoing.
“People of Baltimore, I’m sorry I got caught!”
Pugh is not mentally or physically able to make any decisions Thursday, according to Silverman.
Wait, she was before? Perhaps a nice extended vacation in a country with no extradition treaty with the US would be just what the doctor ordered (ahem) to restore her tragically shattered health. I understand coastal Cuba is lovely this time of year.
