Marilyn Mosby, Freddie Gray Prosecutor, Indicted for Lying on a Loan Applications

Baltimore politicians should just be assigned their federal cell at inauguration.

Apparently she lied to illegally withdraw money from her city retirement account (absurdly over-generous, of course) to invest in property, claiming covid hardship, which she did not suffer at all, as the legal pretext for the withdrawal.

She actually suffered no financial hardship due to covid as she received her full salary all during the pandemic. Of course -- she's a government worker. Gold-plated service for them.

Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby was indicted by a grand jury on federal charges, alleging that she lied on a mortgage application when using coronavirus hardship as a reason to take money out of her city retirement account.

On Thursday, Mosby was indicted on federal charges of making false mortgage applications and perjury, which both relate to vacation home purchases in Florida.

...

She allegedly requested two one-time withdrawals of $40,000 and $50,000 out of her city retirement account, resulting in deposits of $36,000 and $45,000 into her bank account. The court documents allege that Mosby used the money for down-payments on two separate vacation homes in Florida.

Two vacation homes.

Must be nice to be a humble civil servant.

Must be nice.

On two occasions, according to court documents, Mosby also lied on two mortgage applications, allegedly failing to disclose that she had unpaid federal taxes from a number of years and the IRS had placed a $45,022 lien against all property that Mosby and her husband owned.

She faces five years for each of the two counts of perjury and up to thirty (!) years for each of the two counts of a making a false statement on a mortgage application.

I guess they take lying to a bank seriously.

Note to self: Do not lie to banks.

I have a question here: I wonder how any of this came to light. It seems like the sort of crime that's likely to go undetected in most cases.

Maybe she just lied enough times that a bank monitor eventually noticed some of the lies. For example:

Mosby is also accused of lying in order to get a lower interest rate on the mortgage for her Kissimmee, Florida vacation home by claiming it was a second home.

She was using that as a rental property and had contracted a property management company to rent it out for her.

When this was posted in the comments yesterday, someone asked if she was responsible for giving rioters "space to destroy."

No. She's an idiot and a destroyer of civil order herself, but she didn't give the "space to destroy" order. That was Baltimore's Mayor, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake.

Rawlings-Blake was not indicted (yet), but did not run for reelection. She was under a cloud for her "space to destroy" riot encouragement policy.

Most other Baltimore mayors have been indicted, though.

Catherine Pugh resigned after having gotten caught in a scam in which she wrote some scammy "children's books" and then awarded city insurance contracts to companies based on the conditions that they order hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of her "educational children's books." Many of the books did not even exist; they were just notional markers for transferring a bribe to Pugh's accounts.

Before Rawlings-Blake was Sheila Dixon:

Dixon was investigated for theft, fraud, embezzlement, and perjury shortly after taking office in 2008. The most notable crime was the theft of donated gift cards intended for needy families, which she used to purchase several fur coats and designer shoes.

She was indicted on 12 counts by a federal grand jury. Although she did not serve jail time as part of a plea deal, she resigned in 2010 with a promise not to seek any political office for the term of her probation.
