BALTIMORE — Following a trip to Missouri to support Circuit Attorney, Kim Gardner, City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby received a hate-filled voicemail from a caller, using racist rhetoric and violent words.

The message contains hateful language and may be upsetting to some individuals. It can be viewed above.

Mosby released a statement regarding the voicemail which can be viewed below:

“The voicemail I received after my trip to Missouri to support Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner was outrageous, but not surprising. Kim knows that people in positions of power also think like this. These are the types of attacks we encounter every day as women of color in a position of authority, and I traveled to St. Louis because this is the unfortunate experience of black female prosecutors everywhere. It’s deeply disturbing that in 2020 we still have to experience such blatant racism, but this hateful rhetoric only strengthens my resolve to continue fighting for justice, and working to undo the blight of mass incarceration and its impact on communities of color.”
