RadioOnFire.com – After news of FBI and IRS raids on Mayor Catherine Pugh’s homes, her attorney’s office and City Hall, Gov. Larry Hogan called on her to resign.
“Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead,” Hogan said in a statement. “For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign.”
Earlier this month, Hogan directed the state prosecutor to investigate Pugh’s business dealings.
The entire City Council, the city’s House of Delegates delegation and Comptroller Peter Franchot have already called for her resignation. Acting Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young this week said he would “hate to see” Pugh return to office, but said that his demanding a resignation would be “self-serving.”
