Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh, on leave amid book probe, has homes and City Hall office raided by feds | Fox News

Federal agents raided two homes belonging to Baltimore’s embattled mayor as well as City Hall on Thursday amid ongoing investigations into lucrative sales of her “Healthy Holly” books.

The Democratic mayor, who is currently on a leave of absence she’s blamed on pneumonia, has faced mounting calls to resign after it was discovered she reportedly received $500,000 from the University of Maryland Medical System for her self-authored “Healthy Holly” children’s book series.

UMMS reportedly paid Pugh for 100,000 copies of her books between 2011 and 2018, while she was on its board, with the stated intention of distributing the books to schools and day care centers.

But some 50,000 copies remain unaccounted for and officials are probing if they were ever even printed.
