Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh Sentenced to Three Years in Federal Prison for Corruption and Fraud

Conservative TreeHouse:

Political leaders, specifically mayors in Baltimore Maryland, are predisposed toward corrupt behavior.  Remember Sheila Dixon in ’08, or Stephanie Rawlings Blake in ’15… It’s a perpetual cycle. I digress…

Into the corrupt landscape comes Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, who was arrested in 2019 for taking bribes and payoffs through a pay-to-play bribery scandal for books she “authored” called “Healthy Holly”.   Want a city contract?…. buy her books, easy peasy. MORE

  1. I believe it was Lord Acton who said, “power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.” However, someone else wrote, “power corrupts, and power often attracts the corruptible.” It seems that the power in the political world provides a strong attraction.

  2. A mayor isn’t high enough on the command chain to get away with it. she shoulda kept it low key till she reached something in the Federal level of it.

  3. In Baltimore it’s figured that 20% of the black womens’ vote now chooses the mayor due to abysmally low voter turnouts of the 70% black population.
    Pugh loved to feud with D. Trump and I have a feeling
    that with the criminal pols being tried in friendly
    local courts never being punished; the President
    told the Feds to go get her. Three Years in a Federal
    Pen!! The city’s Dem political, thieving scum will be looking over their shoulders now!

  4. “Pugh’s attorney, Steve Silverman, called the sentence fair, and said he thinks the former mayor ultimately won’t serve more than 18 months in prison under the new First Step Act, which seeks to reduce the federal prison population.”

    I don’t believe President Trump ever intended for members of the swamp to benefit from this.
