Skip to comments.Pugh's statement 'is not true': City Hall emails reveal how aides learned mayor lied about book

Pugh told The Baltimore Sun on March 20 that she had not sold her books beyond those she provided to UMMS, which paid her $500,000 over several years for 100,000 copies.
There was a problem with that statement, an official with health insurer Kaiser Permanente warned a top Pugh aide. It was not true.
Team - I got a nervous call from folks at Kaiser, wrote Karen Stokes, a Pugh adviser and the citys top lobbyist, in a March 21 email to three other senior administration officials. ...apparently the Mayor has said that she has sold her books to UMMS only. However, she has, in fact, sold books to Kaiser.

“Let the rioters and looters blow off some steam”
You know what I hate the most about politicians that get caught?
They either cry or say they have some kind of addiction or make an awful, fake apology or now say they re insane temporarily.
I know guys that have gotten pinched. They knew they did what they got caught for. Usually ended in a plea and did three to five or whatever and that was that.
You committed a crime.
Now shut up and take your medicine.
unless you’re a politician.
Yeah, but she’s covered. She already had her lawyer tell the world she’s “not lucid.” Therefore she’s not responsible for things she’s said in the past.
She’s still mayor though.
BTW, she supposedly got $500,000 for selling 100,000 copies of her children’s books, although the company that printed the book has stated that it only printed 60,000 copies.
Shes Democrat. A melanin enriched Democrat, at that. This is all just a simple misunderstanding. The Judge is explaining this all away today. This poor woman has suffered enough and we should all just get back to our business. Nothing to see.
I think it was a different mayor.
There's a long paper trail from several sources....including how she handled the sale on her income tax.
Absolutely no doubt about that.
To be replaced by another crook.
So what is all this confab about Wasserman, Carter, and the Gov? Are they trying to tie Hogan in with this mess? Won’t wash.
Hey, it's where Pelosi earned her chops!
selling 100,000 copies of her childrens books, although the company that printed the book has stated that it only printed 60,000 copies.”””
The printing company KNOWS how many books they printed.
Cannot falsify those records.
She is toast.
The shipping records of the books also would be in the hands of that company & cannot be falsified.
Shipping for 40,000 books isn’t just a clerical error.
Anything can be falsified. Birth certificates. Causes of fires. Etc.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
