BALTIMORE — Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby on Wednesday said the State Ethics Commission has cleared her of any wrongdoing, amid fallout from an Inspector General's report that accused her of traveling without proper authorization.

According to Mosby's office, the commission found that she actually over-reported the trips and was not required to disclose them in the first place.

As result, Mosby says the commission has asked her to amend her ethics forms and to also note the return of three gifts she received on trips that were intended to be auctioned (hair oil, CBD products, and candles valued at $263), after they were deemed unacceptable.

“Today, the State Ethics Commission has found what I knew all along- I have done nothing wrong. I will continue to ignore the incessant politically- motivated attempts to bring me down, and will continue to keep my focus on building a more fair and equitable justice system in the City of Baltimore.”
