Baltimore Mayor Urged To Resign Amid Ongoing Children's Book Probe

According to Reuters, the Baltimore City Council has called for Mayor Catherine Pugh's resignation.

The request comes as the state continues to probe a deal in which a hospital chain where Pugh served as director paid her $500,000 for copies of her self-published children’s book.

Pugh said last week that she would take an indefinite leave of absence for health reasons after the Baltimore Sun revealed the deal with the University of Maryland Medical System.
