If Marilyn Mosby ends up doing more time than any of the law enforcement personnel whom she wrongly targeted over the death of Freddie Gray, a drug dealer, that would be the most perfect form of poetic justice.
And it’s not impossible.
Federal prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation into Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby and State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, subpoenaing her campaign and the couple’s business records, according to a grand jury subpoena obtained by The Baltimore Sun.
The U.S. Attorney’s office and the FBI requested a wide range of financial records related to the power couple: tax returns, bank statements, credit card statements, loan documents and canceled checks. They subpoenaed Mosby’s campaign treasurer and requested records tracing back to 2014, some related to the Mosbys’ private travel and consulting businesses.
Now, why would they be doing that?
Marilyn Mosby, meanwhile, has been embroiled in a tense back-and-forth with the office of the Baltimore inspector general. Mosby faced growing questions last summer about her trips abroad to criminal justice conferences and her private travel businesses. She publicly asked the inspector general to open an investigation. Mosby said any investigation would dispel and suggestion of wrongdoing.
Inspector General Isabel Mercedes Cumming published her investigation seven months later, finding Mosby spent 144 days away in 2018 and 2019 — or one workday a week; Mosby’s office has disputed the number of days…
Marilyn Mosby’s campaign treasurer forwarded the subpoena to state elections officials along with an email about the use of campaign funds for legal fees. The companies listed include Nick Mosby’s firm of Monumental Squared LLC and Marilyn Mosby’s Mahogany Elite Travel and Consulting.
The state’s attorney has said she formed Mahogany Elite Travel to help underserved Black families vacation around the world at affordable rates. She said the companies exists in name only.
How generous of her. And there are the Florida homes.
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has purchased two homes in Florida for more than $1 million combined since September, including a condo on the Gulf of Mexico that closed just days before her campaign said it was exploring setting up a legal defense fund for her mounting attorneys’ fees.
Probably to help underserved black families vacation in Florida.
But that’s just how things go in Charm City.
Mayor Pugh was forced to resign after a corruption scandal involving her book sales. McCarthy had previously worked for Mayor Sheila Dixon, who had been forced to resign as part of her plea agreement from a trial that stemmed from, among other things, stealing toys from poor children.
Despite being a convicted criminal, Dixon tried to make a comeback in the 2016 election. The race pitted Dixon, who had been convicted of embezzlement, against Pugh. Dixon won the black vote, while Pugh won the white vote.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa was appointed to the thankless job of running the police department last year. The Feds pointed out that he hadn’t filed tax returns for three years. He also claimed a mortgage interest deduction when he didn’t have a mortgage and businesses losses for a business he didn’t have. Then he also lied about giving money to charity.
De Sousa has been sentenced to 10 months in jail for tax fraud.
Forget it Jack, it’s Charm City.
