Democrat Leader INDICTED

Breaking: Democrat Leader INDICTED

Yet another corrupt Democrat leader has been accused of serious corruption after being indicted on allegations of perjury and making a false statement on a loan application.

On January 13th, Baltimore City State Attorney Marilyn Mosby was federally indicted on charges of perjury and making a false statement on a loan application. According to reporting from FOX 45 Baltimore, “Mosby is accused of lying about experiencing COVID-related hardship on an application where she asked to withdraw $40,000 from her Baltimore City retirement account.”

The indictment states that the Democrat leader was not under any actual financial hardship due to the COVID pandemic.

“She is also charged with making false statements to influence a mortgage company, in connection with a vacation home in Florida. She allegedly failed to disclose that she owed ‘significant amounts of federal taxes’ on a mortgage application,” the local media outlet added.

On the charges relating to mortgage applications, Mosby reportedly neglected to mention that she “had unpaid federal taxes or that in March 2020 the Internal Revenue Service had placed a $45,000 lien against all properties she and her husband owned,” according to the indictment.

According to the indictment, Mosby requested permission in May and December of 2020 to withdraw $40,000 and $50,000, respectively, from her City of Baltimore employee retirement account. She was able to do this by utilizing a Cares Act clause which enables individuals impacted by the COVID pandemic to have access to their money.

On both occasions, Mosby claimed under penalty of perjury that she had experienced “adverse financial consequences” related to work hardships as a direct result of the pandemic. Federal prosecutors say that they have evidence that these claims are not true.

After receiving the money, Mosby used it to purchase two properties in Florida: a home in Kissimmee, and a condo in Long Boat Key.

Mosby has been characterized as a “rogue prosecutor” during the majority of her short time in office. She was elected in 2014, and soon after taking office announced that she would stop prosecuting certain misdemeanor cases, including prostitution and drug possession, claiming that it would help with overcrowding in jails.

She has been criticized by several members of her community, including a Republican and pastor named Shannon Wright.

“There used to be a time, and some folks may not like this phrase, but there’s a thing called ‘Black excellence,’ where we strove as parents to instill it in our children, where as teachers we strove to instill it in our students,” Wright said. “It was something that — not mediocrity, not baseline, when you set a goal to say ‘we don’t want to hurt folk by unfairly prosecuting these crimes,’ these lead to other crimes, these escalate. And for those that want to argue that fact, seventh straight year, 300+ homicides. The officer just laid to rest yesterday, our children still not getting a proper education, we’re in a situation where, in our schools, [we have] learning loss whether you’re in the building or not.”

“No parent is going to look at these things as low level crime, and I tell you why,” Wright added in response to Mosby’s prosecutorial stance. “When you’re a good parent, you spend time with your children, you start to discipline them. They understand, when I say this, this is what you have to do. When that doesn’t happen, there’s a punishment. That’s a foundational example that we set with our children when they are young. So when you become a prosecutor, and you have a larger scope to be able to set that foundation of what is acceptable and what is not, and you choose to send the wrong message, you cannot then cry foul when people say you are the cause of the problems with regard to crime that we are seeing.”

Wright also noted that the city needed “prosecutors to prosecute because they have to be that line of defense where people understand if there is an issue that’s causing you to act outside of the way you should, we’re going to get you help.”

“Marilyn Mosby is that last line of defense to make people follow the normal, accepted community values and morals, and the law, and when she abdicates that role, it leads to anarchy and unrest like we’re seeing in the city,” she added.

The irony is, Mosby may end up in prison herself if she is found guilty of the charges that she has been indicted on.
