Corrupt Baltimore Mayor Who Scammed Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars from City's Health Care Funds Sentenced to Three Years in Prison

She got the Democrat Discount.

Former Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh was sentenced to three years in federal prison Thursday after she pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy and tax evasion related money she received from sales of her self-published children's book series.

Prosecutors said Pugh, a Democrat who served as Baltimore's mayor from 2016 to 2019, received more than $850,000 in sales from her "Healthy Holly" books to the University of Maryland Medical System (UMMS) and other entities she was connected to.

...

Pugh admitted in her plea deal that she double-sold books to multiple purchasers and also accepted payments for books that were never delivered. The former mayor also admitted to using the fraudulent proceeds to funnel straw donations to her mayoral campaign and to fund the purchase and renovation of a house in Baltimore.
