BALTIMORE (ABC7) — FBI and IRS agents raided the home and office of Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh on Thursday morning.
Agents had a warrant when they performed the search. The FBI confirmed that agents were at the address of office for the Maryland Center for Adult Training, a non-profit program Pugh has been closely involved with, according to Ian Duncan with the Baltimore Sun.
Pugh and five of her staffers are on paid leave after a scandal over book sales. The Baltimore mayor went on leave on April 1 saying she needed time off to recover from pneumonia, the Associated Press reported.
Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is calling for Pugh's resignation.
"On April 1, I directed the state prosecutor to investigate the disturbing allegations surrounding Mayor Catherine Pugh's questionable financial dealings with UMMS. Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor's homes and offices."
"Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead. For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign," Hogan tweeted.
