Do you remember Marilyn Mosby? She became a national figure in 2015 following the death of Freddie Gray, which was a national news story.
She was just indicted on federal charges. She tried to use COVID rules to get access to money she planned to use to buy property in Florida.
Serious money was involved.
Baltimore state’s attorney indicted on federal charges
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, the city’s top prosecutor, was indicted on Thursday on federal charges of perjury and filing false mortgage applications related to her purchase of two Florida vacation homes.
Mosby, a Democrat elected to her post in 2015, is accused of falsely claiming twice to have suffered a work-related financial hardship from COVID-19 in order to request early withdrawals totaling $90,000 from her city employee retirement account.
In both instances, the indictment stated, Mosby fraudulently cited a federal CARES Act provision allowing for emergency distributions of up to $100,000 from her retirement plan in the event of a furlough, layoff, quarantine, reduced work hours, lack of childcare or impact on one’s own business caused by COVID-19.
Prosecutors said Mosby, 41, used the money she received – $36,000 in May 2020 and $45,000 on Dec. 31 of that year – toward down payments on vacation homes in Kissimmee, Florida, and Long Boat Key, Florida.
The two counts of perjury stem from Mosby’s false statements of coronavirus-related financial duress at a time when she was earning a gross annual salary of nearly $248,000 in full, the indictment asserted.
Ann Coulter made a great point about this.
I love that one set of charges involves her purchase of TWO HOMES IN FLORIDA.
If liberals are going to keep bashing Florida, could they stay the hell out?https://t.co/BfKsHzFb0n

This is also a good point.
Marilyn Mosby should have been behind bars for years after she incited the Freddie Gray riots https://t.co/82mLcEURrZ

Mosby better find herself a good lawyer.
