Mayilyn Mosby is the very progressive State’s Lawyer for Baltimore. She was just lately indicted by Joe Biden’s Justice Division for a bit of economic razzle-dazzle, and a few old style mendacity, in connection along with her buy of a luxurious condo in Florida. She has claimed — and I’m not making this up — that the costs are racially motivated.
Nonetheless, one should give Ms. Mosby her due. The State’s Lawyer place is an elected workplace, for which she needed to marketing campaign (and is campaigning once more regardless of the federal indictment). Campaigns value cash, so contributions are wanted. Ms. Mosby reported receiving a contribution from her grandfather, a former police officer. That may be heartening in a manner, apart from the catch.
The catch is that her grandfather is lifeless and had been lifeless for years on the time the “contributed” cash confirmed up.
Right here’s the start of the story from the Baltimore Brew:
He was buried seven years in the past, however the grandfather of Baltimore State’s Lawyer Marilyn Mosby apparently lives on as a supply of marketing campaign money for her and her husband, Metropolis Council President Nick Mosby.
Prescott Thompson, who died on February 22, 2015 at age 82, is listed as contributing $500 to Marilyn Mosby final yr, in accordance with her most up-to-date finance report back to the State Board of Elections.
The $500 test was reported as obtained on November 30, 2021 by Mates of Marilyn Mosby.
As chairman of the Mates committee, Marilyn Mosby vouched, beneath the penalty of perjury, for the report’s accuracy “to the very best of my information, data and perception.”
The report was filed on January 19, 2022, or six days after she was indicted on federal prices linked to her buy of two Florida trip houses.
Mosby has pleaded not responsible to the costs.
She didn’t reply to questions by The Brew concerning the Prescott Thompson contribution.
Think about that.
The Mosby finance report lists the deceased Thompson as dwelling on the similar Dorchester, Massachusetts, home the place he and his surviving widow, Marilyn Thompson, raised Baltimore’s future chief prosecutor.
Thompson is listed as “retired” in Mosby’s marketing campaign report.
Hey, look, I’m retired (or largely retired; I educate regulation part-time), however, at the very least as of this writing, not lifeless but.
