CROOKED POLITICIANS: ‘Happy Holly’ former Mayor Pugh pleads guilty to a scheme that netted her $345,000 while lying in disclosing side income while Maryland State Senator

Baltimore, Maryland – For the crooked former Mayor of Baltimore, one more criminal charge has been adjudicated when she entered a guilty plea to perjury on June 19, 2020. That makes her a confessed liar as well as a crook placing her firmly in the long list of corrupt Baltimore elected officials – all Democrats.

Maryland State Prosecutor Charlton Howard announced June 19, 2020, that former Baltimore Mayor Catherine E. Pugh pleaded guilty in the Circuit Court of Anne Arundel County to a charge of perjury for her failure to disclose her business interest in Healthy Holly LLC, on her financial disclosures during her tenure as a Maryland State Senator in the Maryland General Assembly.

  Specifically, Pugh earned at least $345,000 in income in 2016 through sales of her Healthy Holly books, yet failed to disclose her ownership of Healthy Holly, LLC, on her financial disclosure forms.

In Court, Pugh admitted that the State’s evidence would show that while serving as a State Senator for the 40th District of Maryland, she was required to disclose her interests in any business entities from which she earned income throughout her tenure in the Senate. The Statement of Facts, read during the proceedings, demonstrated that while Pugh did disclose her business interests in other companies that she owned or operated, she did not disclose her interest in Healthy Holly, LLC.  Specifically, Pugh earned at least $345,000 in income in 2016 through sales of her Healthy Holly books, yet failed to disclose her ownership of Healthy Holly, LLC, on her financial disclosure forms.

Financial disclosure forms required of elected representatives and certain State employees are filed with the Maryland State Ethics Commission and signed under the penalties of perjury.
