Could it be she got her hand caught in the cookie jar with regard to her children’s book deal scheme with the University of Maryland Medical System? Mayor Pugh’s reactions and responses to this book-gate scandal are illuminating. She borrows a page from President Donald Trump by calling the investigations into her transaction a “witch hunt.” She asserts that she pays her taxes and files everything yet she refuses to provide copies of tax records related to the book deal. She returns $100,000 from the overall amount of $500,000 to the University of Maryland Medical System. If she did no wrong, why is she giving the money back?
