BREAKING: Baltimore Mayor to Take Leave Amid Scandal

Baltimore, Maryland, Mayor Catherine Pugh is reportedly taking a leave of absence amid an ongoing political scandal.

Pugh has been accused of signing lucrative deals to sell her self-published children’s books to a local university-based health care system. Pugh’s office says that she is taking the leave after her doctors advised her to do so in order to “focus on her health.”

Her announcement came shortly after Maryland’s governor called on the state prosecutor to investigate allegations against Pugh and Maryland’s comptroller called on her to resign.
