She thought she could hide it – but now she’s put her city to shame.
Whenever we look into the inner-dealings of powerful Democrats, we seem to find corruption.
It’s almost a guarantee.
We might never know why. Take this latest case. The mayor of a major city—a sanctuary city—was suddenly caught in a big scandal.
She got a nice big payday from a major corporation, just as they were negotiating a deal with the city.
Sounds bad? It only gets worse. Now the city is demanding her resignation—and she’s hiding out.
At least one Baltimore City Council member is calling for Mayor Catherine Pugh to resign as a scandal intensifies over allegations of “self-dealing” arrangements to sell her children’s book series.
The mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, accepted $100,000 from Kaiser Permanente for a bunch of copies of her children’s book.
Oh, and this was happening, right as the company was seeking a contract to provide healthcare for city employees.
Wow, that doesn’t sound shady at all! (Can you hear my sarcasm?)
When this spilled out into the open, people started demanding answers. And wouldn’t you know? Pugh was nowhere to be found.
From Red State Watcher:
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is taking a leave of absence due to her battle with pneumonia, just hours after Gov. Hogan sent a letter to a state prosecutor asking him to investigate book sales between Pugh and the University of Maryland Medical System.
How convenient. Just as the state starts to investigate this situation, Pugh won’t be around to testify.
That doesn’t seem suspicious!
I’m guessing that if this was yet another pay-for-play deal (which Democrats love), her absence won’t alter what investigators find.
Although I’m sure she’ll be talking with plenty of lawyers while she’s at home getting rest.
SHARE to tell Baltimore to send this mayor packing!
