FBI executes search warrant at Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh's home, city hall



Pugh, and Democrat, has taken a leave of absence amid a scandal over the sale of a children's book she authored. While she was a board member of the University of Maryland Medical System, UMMS spent $ 500,000 to fund the purchase of some 100,000 books from Pugh's company Healthy Holly LLC, and a spokesman for the medical system has confirmed

Pugh apologized in March for having "done something to upset the people."

The UMMS spokesman, Michael Schwartzberg, has said that UMMS has never had possession of any Healthy Holly books nor did it distribute books. The book was distributed by Healthy Holly LLC

Pugh recently returned $ 1

00,000 to the medical system and canceled her book deal. She also resigned from the hospital's board, according to Schwartzberg.

Pugh also received about $ 114,000 from Kaiser Permanente for some 20,000 books from 2015 to 2018, according to health care provider. Kaiser Permanente said it delivered the books to back-to-school fairs, elementary schools, communities of faith and early childhood education and care centers

Additionally, the Associated Black Charities, a public foundation that works to encourage healthier and more prosperous communities , said it spent about $ 80,000 between 2011 and 2016 to buy some 10,000 copies of Pugh's books – a project the organization learned about while she was still a state senator
