Baltimore Mayor Bolts -- Pugh Missing After FBI-IRS Raid

• https://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

Jason Bentley, Pugh's spokesman, told the Associated Press on Thursday that he has no clue where the Mayor is, while her defense attorney, Steve Silverman, routed calls to voicemail. 

According to the report, "Pugh was at her home when the raid began, but has since left the state."

Pugh was asked to resign by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan shortly after the raids. 

"Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor's homes and offices," said Hogan. "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."

The city is now into the fourth week of Pugh on indefinite leave and silence is surrounding Baltimore's top offices. Pugh's aides have gone silent on status updates, declining to comment on her health this week- as questions linger on when, or if, she plans to return to work.
