Prosecutors Seek Five Years in Prison for Corrupt Former Baltimore Mayor Who Scammed the Medical/Hospital System and Diverted Hundreds of Thousands of Taxpayer Dollars into Buying Her Stupid "Healthy Holly" Books

Here was the scam: if you were a health care or insurance organization or hospital that wanted a city contract, you had to please the mayor.

And you know what would really please the mayor?

Spending a half million of taxpayer-subsidized dollars to buy her stupid children's book.

[F]ormer Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh made a killing on sales of her self-published "Healthy Holly" children’s books; for example, she sold 100,000 copies at a total cost of $500,000 to the University of Maryland Medical System, on whose board she was sitting at the time.

Oh, I forgot about that: Yeah, she was often sitting on the boards of the companies that decided to buy her trash book.

Also, the Maryland Automobile Insurance Fund puchased $7,500 worth of copies shortly before Pugh successfully sponsored legislation sought by the company.

More? Kaiser Permanente, which was seeking a city contract, also purchased more than $100,000 worth of the mayor’s self-published books, and a local nonprofit that won a big city contract just happened to purchase $87,000 worth. But when reporters tried to track down copies of this amazing best-selling series, they found 8,700 unsolicited and unopened boxes of "Health Holly" books at a decrepit Baltimore School District Warehouse.

Well they were never really "books" to begin with. They were merely markers, markers for bribery payments, by which monies could be siphoned out of the publicly-funded health system and into the Baltimore mayor's pockets.

Need evidence of that? Well, somehow, she managed to sell the same copies of the same books to multiple organizations with business before the city.

She just kept selling the same "books" over and over.


How did she get away with selling and reselling the same "books"? Well, simple: Most "buyers" wouldn't bother to actually take possession of them, because they weren't ever really "books." They were just Markers for graft. Figments in the accounting books to make it look legal -- from a distance.

There is a case in (Texas?) where the DA is recommending the max 10 years for smoking and possession of pot for a white boy who had social media or pictures come up with a Nazi flag.

Yes, I will say slippery slope because all Trump supports and White people are Nazis according to the MSM the last 4 years.

111 yeah, the Clintons just gave speeches for a half million, and ran their cartel out of their charity/foundation ($150M from Russia with love, uranium deal was just a bonus).


Apparently charities and foundations are much safer than reselling the same book 100 times for political clout. (oh, and Clintons had friends to do the redrum for them ... which always helped the graft medicine go down)

Do you all see the Timing of letting off McCabe?

Barr, after publicly scolding President Trump and telling him "hands off," Barr figured it would be a perfect
time to sweep McCabe under the rug at a time when the president is hesitant to tweet about the injustice.

229 There was a similar story in the USSR during the cold war. The Austrian Embassy took delivery of a huge # of books by Krushchev to hand out, then stuffed them in the attic. Decades later the GRU spies wanted space to work, and found the area with these books.

They had super secret transfer cargo containers sent for by GRU central, had the area blocked off and tons of these books shipped back to the USSR in compete secrecy and burned in a top secret facility. The author, a spy, said all the other groups of spies (KGB and Western) were super jealous of what a score the operation was.

408 For those less than 29:

Jim Wright (D) Speaker of the House (Wiki):

In 1988 Wright became the target of an inquiry by the House Ethics Committee. Their report in early 1989 implied that he had used bulk purchases of his book, Reflections of a Public Man, to earn speaking fees in excess of the allowed maximum, and that his wife, Betty, was given a job and perks to avoid the limit on gifts . Faced with an increasing loss of effectiveness, Wright tendered his resignation as Speaker on May 31, 1989, the resignation to become effective on the selection of a successor.[22] He was the first Speaker to resign because of a scandal. On June 6, the Democratic Caucus brought Wright's speakership to an end by selecting his replacement, Tom Foley of Washington, and on June 30 Wright resigned his seat in Congress
------

Annnd, some commentary:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, stated, "Speaker Wright was a person of deep courage, brilliant eloquence, and complete mastery of the legislative process.

Really? I find fresh garlic varies a ton in intensity. Stud one roast and it's great. Stud a roast a week later with a different head and it's completely overpowered by the garlic.

I just gave up on it as I prefer to taste the roast.

Lived in the North End when I was an apprentice cabinetmaker. I loved it. I had basically a meal plan with one of the restaurants. Leftovers in the kitchen and I would then clean at night. Food fit for a king.

428 >>what possible purpose did Barr have to go to ABC and talk shit about his boss

Do you honestly think everything ended today? Do you think Durham is a fake, Barr stepping in to overturn Mueller investigations was a one time thing, the Flynn prosecution is over, the Stone prosecution?

The DOJ and the FBI have destroyed their reputations under Obama. They were totally politicized and the 2 tiers of justice became obvious to every thinking person even if only we admit it. This is a recipe for disaster and no, they aren't going to be ended nor does Trump want them ended. He wants them reformed.

There is a lot of stuff coming against the coup plotters. Durham is not a mirage no matter how many times some people claim he is. And the DOJ can't be seen to be acting as political no matter how hard the left will claim it is. The only chance we have of getting out of this short of violence is to make the DOJ appear to be apolitical and operating under the law only. That is the only way things that will come out have a chance of being accepted by the majority of the country not just us.

McCabe is not out of danger. None of them are. This is just getting started.
