Third Democratic Baltimore Mayor in a Row Leaves Office in Disgrace

Since 1947, Baltimore has only had 1 Republican mayor, Theodore McKeldin who served from 1963-1967, the year he did not run for re-election.

Democrats have controlled the city of Edgar Allan Poe for past 53 years.

In 2010, Democratic Mayor Sheila Dixon resigned in disgrace.

In 2016, Democratic Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake did not run for re-election due to scandals.

On Thursday of this week, Democratic Mayor Catherine Pugh resigned, after the FBI and IRS raided her home, collecting evidence due to a scandal.

When you take a look at the Democratic Party in general, it seems that these last three mayors have been following party policy in disregarding laws and ethics.

The Federalist – Baltimore Mayor Third In A Row To Leave Office In Disgrace – 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.

Pugh’s shady financial practices date back to years before her time as mayor, but as the sources of revenue from her book sales became known in early 2019, the evidence of her misdeeds became impossible to ignore. In March, The Baltimore Sun broke the story about Pugh’s possibly inappropriate collection of payments from Kaiser Permanente and Associated Black Charities. Kaiser Permanente was vying for a lucrative contract to insure Baltimore City employees at the time they purchased $115,000 worth of children’s books authored by Pugh. Associated Black Charities collected funds from multiple other sources to buy $80,000 worth of the books…

All three of these Democratic mayors are no different than their national leaders, including Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and whole long list of others.

Don’t get me wrong as I openly admit that the Republican Party has its fair share of corruption and scandals, but nothing like what the Democrats have undertaken over the past 11 years.

Time and again, the Democrats have displayed an open rejection of the US Constitution, federal and state laws.

Consider how just this week it was reported that Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) posted a video of herself driving with her unrestrained 6-year-old daughter dancing in the backseat, a clear violation of Minnesota law.
