Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan Says Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh Should Resign

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Thursday called on Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) to resign, saying that “she has lost the public trust,” following revelations that she earned hundreds of thousands of dollars by selling her children’s book series to companies doing business in the city.

“She is clearly not fit to lead,” he tweeted, joining a number of city and state lawmakers who have already called for her resignation.

A Baltimore Sun investigation earlier this year revealed that Pugh sold thousands of copies of her self-published “Healthy Holly” children’s book series to companies seeking contracts with the city, including medical giant Kaiser Permanente.
