Baltimore giving Chicago a run for it's money on corruption

I forgot about that stupid mayor during the Freddie Gray crap

Baltimore Mayor Third In A Row To Leave Office In Disgrace
Quote:
On Thursday, Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh resigned after a month of scandal that culminated with an FBI and IRS seizure of dozens of boxes of documents last week. Pugh’s second career as a children’s book author of future classics like “Healthy Holly: Fruits Come in Colors Like a Rainbow” and “Exercising Is Fun” became the subject of much controversy when she began to collect huge sums for her works.

The Baltimore mayoral office has been troubled for more than a decade. Pugh is the third Baltimore mayor in a row to vacate office in a cloud of shame. Her predecessor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, chose not to run for re-election following the death of Freddie Gray and subsequent city riots in 2015. Her response to the crises was widely criticized. Once a rising star of the Democrat Party, Rawlings-Blake, just 49, is now out of politics.

Rawlings-Blake began her mayoral stint in the fog of another disgraced Baltimore mayor, Sheila Dixon. Dixon was investigated for theft, fraud, embezzlement, and perjury shortly after taking office in 2008. The most notable crime was the theft of donated gift cards intended for needy families, which she used to purchase several fur coats and designer shoes.

She was indicted on 12 counts by a federal grand jury. Although she did not serve jail time as part of a plea deal, she resigned in 2010 with a promise not to seek any political office for the term of her probation.
Hard to top a threepeat

Three black women mayors in a row - all three ineffective, corrupt and disgraced - and all three Democrats.

There hasn’t been a white man as mayor of Baltimore since 2007 when Martin O’Malley became governor of Maryland (last seen running for president in 2016).

There hasn’t been a Republican mayor of Baltimore since Theodore McKeldin in the 1940’s and again in the 1960’s (he was governor of Maryland in the 1950’s).

Unacceptable. Sadly September 11 is many years in our past though the corpse of Bin Ladin is well-rotted. It is time for FBI to return focus to routing corruption from government. Lock them up and throw away the key
