A few short hours after FBI raids at several Baltimore locations related to Mayor Catherine Pugh, Governor Larry Hogan released a statement.

"On April 1, I directed the state prosecutor to investigate the disturbing allegations surrounding Mayor Catherine Pugh’s questionable financial dealings with the University of Maryland Medical System. Today, Federal law enforcement agents are raiding Baltimore’s City Hall, the homes of Mayor Catherine Pugh and the office of her attorney.

"Now more than ever, Baltimore City needs strong and responsible leadership. Mayor Pugh has lost the public trust. She is clearly not fit to lead.

"For the good of the city, Mayor Pugh must resign."
