Democrat Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is under investigation by the FBI for corruption, and could be resigning any moment. However, here’s her excuse for delaying. The Daily Caller reports:
Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is not “lucid” enough to make the decision to resign due to poor health, according to her attorney Thursday.
Pugh’s attorney Steve Silverman said she could likely make the decision in the coming week, but she was disappointed at the thought of stepping away from her position, The Baltimore Sun reported Thursday.
“She just needs to be physically and mentally sound and lucid enough to make appropriate decisions,” Silverman said, according to The Associated Press.
Silverman added that Pugh met with a doctor at home Thursday and plans to have another appointment Friday.
One party cities like Baltimore will always slide towards corruption because voters do not hold their elected officials accountable. It’s time for a change.
why is it politicians who commit a crime are aloud to resign instead of going to jail like the rest of us?
Two things you can ALWAYS count on ..dems never apologize and RARELY resign ..
What kind of brain damaged people would vote for someone like this? Nevermind, I know, liberals. I hope she stays and paints the streets rainbow colors, takes Baltimore’s treasury gives it to the poor and sends them to Atlantic City, bans cars and buses from the city and turns the parks into tent cities.
The big problem with DemoRats………..they all…… are mentally sick !!
Why would Mayor Pugh resign when she can lay back doing nothing and still collect her over paid salary??? She needs to prosecuted!!! Fired and jailed!!!
The hell with resignation. Sounds like criminal prosecution if appropriate and very long overdue, which leaves open the following questions. What is going on in Baltimore, and why?
Another reason: to keep getting the salary. I wouldn’t be surprised if her “poor health” prevents her from _ever_ going back to work.
She’s under investigation. So it follows that she hasn’t been convicted of anything. Along those same lines, except these people have admitted wrong doing, in Texas 95,000 people were denied the right to vote by Texas officials who made up a lie in order to deny these folks their voting rights. Then they expunged them from voter lists.
Now the officials have fessed up to the feds that they concocted this ruse on purpose. But, they still have their jobs when they should be in prison. But they’re republicons, so I guess it’s all right to do what they did. Texas has GOT to be the most politically corrupt state in the union.
Wondering why the writer of this article hasn’t mentioned the Texas voter scandal? Just sayin’………
