Democrats always say that they take the “high road.” They spent quite a bit of time accusing the president of being a lawbreaker, haven’t they?
But it seems the party is trying very hard to forget about Catherine Pugh, former Democrat Mayor of Baltimore.
Federal prosecutors arrested her, charging her with eleven counts. In fact, Pugh pleaded guilty to charges involving her children’s book—and the huge sums of money she got from it.
Now, prosecutors won’t let her off easy. They’re pushing for hard time.
From Daily Wire:
Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is facing up to five years in prison over her infamous “Healthy Holly” children’s book scandal, over which she resigned last May and pleaded guilty in November…
In November, Pugh pleaded guilty… while the terms of the agreement were not revealed, her sentencing was scheduled for late February.
Ouch. Catherine Pugh is facing up to five years in behind bars over charges connected to her children’s book.
It seems, according to prosecutors, that Pugh’s book sold, really, really well. Too well, actually.
Copies of the book were sold, then resold. The biggest buyers? Not kids, surprisingly. Instead it was big companies that wanted contracts with the city of Baltimore, based on the charges.
Pugh pleaded guilty to the charges brought before her. Maybe she thought it was just easier copping to the truth than fighting it.
We often see politicians denying charges, even after evidence starts mounting up.
And high-level Democrats too often get off with light consequences (or none at all!).
But Pugh must not have the powerful lawyers other Democrats have (or the right connections), because she is facing the full brunt of the federal government.
The real victim? The city of Baltimore. It has been run by Democrats for many years. Decades, in fact.
And the stats seem to show the city is suffering for it.
Meanwhile, its former mayor was wheeling and dealing for herself.
SHARE if you want this Democrat to serve hard time!
