The FBI wants any and all tips related to public corruption in Baltimore and a spokesman said a billboard and corresponding social media posts are not tied to the fact their agents were seen raiding the home and offices of embattled Mayor Catherine Pugh last week.
No, the billboard and posts are not directly linked with the ongoing investigation into Pugh’s “Healthy Holly” children’s books and her deals to sell them to the University of Maryland Medical System, Kaiser Permanente and others, FBI spokesman Dave Fitz said late Monday afternoon.
Fitz said the push on billboards and social media was simply a coincidence and something the office does every four to five months.
“We just do that from time to time,” Fitz said. “We’re always looking for tips.”
And he was quick to point out that the FBI is, in fact, investigating a number of public corruption cases.
