BALTIMORE, MD- Oh Marilyn…we hardly knew ye.
Marilyn is Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby, whose previous claim to fame was indicting six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddy Gray back in 2015, has just fallen flat on her face, after a federal grand jury indicted her on federal charges of lying on loan applications, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Mosby, at once considered a rising star in the Democratic Party saw her indictments of the six Baltimore officers go up in flames, after all six officers were either acquitted or had their charges dropped.
It was widely believed Mosby charged the six officers to gain partisan political points to further her political ambitions.
Now, the insufferable Mosby finds herself in legal turmoil after she was indicted on four counts related to financial misdeeds.
One of the charges is related to a $40,000 withdrawal Mosby took from her city retirement account in May 2020, citing financial distress due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Sun said.
“Mosby had not experienced adverse financial consequences stemming from the coronavirus as a result of ‘being quarantined, furloughed, or laid off,’ or ‘having reduced work hours’ or ‘due to lack of childcare’ or ‘the closing or reduction of hours of a business I own or operate,’”—which were all prerequisites for receiving a loan from her account.
Mosby swore to the above under penalty of perjury, the indictment said. Moreover, not only had Mosby not lost any money that year, but her salary increased that year to $248,000.
