BALTIMORE — Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is asking the Inspector General to investigate recently surfaced reports accusing her of excessive international travel, and starting up personal businesses while in office.

For a while Mosby held off on disclosing her businesses on ethics forms, the reports allege.

A good portion of the travel allegations center around trips she made to Europe between 2018 and 2019.

Below is a statement issued by Mosby's office on Thursday.

Last week local news sources reported on the State’s Attorney’s publicly disclosed travel with misleading conjectures of wrong-doing and corruption. The State’s Attorney consistently goes above and beyond statutory disclosure requirements and has consistently been transparent. In recent years, Baltimore residents have endured far too many corruption scandals and need to know what is and is not illegal, which is why the State’s Attorney has called on the Inspector General to conduct a speedy and thorough investigation, so the public can know the truth about these false conjectures and insinuations, and together we can concentrate on making Baltimore the best it can possibly be.
