Disgraced Baltimore states attorney Marilyn Mosby is charging the city with racism as she stands charged with making fraudulent COVID hardship claims and other financial crimes.
Mosby faces a $1 million perjury lawsuit for financial misdeeds, for taking out two loans for a pair of holiday homes in Florida. But she attempted to get the charges dismissed claiming that she is being targeted because… she’s black.
Yep, the old race card.
Per the Daily Mail:
In their most recent filing in the federal case, attorneys for Marilyn Mosby, 42 – who is charged with two counts of perjury and two counts of submitting false statements on loan applications to make the purchases, which amounted to $1.02million – accused federal prosecutors of having a personal vendetta against their client, claiming one of the legal eagles even spread rumors she cheated on her husband.
‘Since its inception, the prosecution against State’s Attorney Mosby has been driven by malicious personal, political, and even racial animus on the part of the prosecutors,’ Mosby’s attorneys wrote in motion to toss the case filed Friday.
The city official’s legal team characterized their client’s indictment as the culmination of a ‘crusade to ruin the political career of a young, progressive, Black, female elected official.’
The lawyers specifically accused the prosecution’s head lawyer, Erek Barron, of ‘prosecutorial vindictiveness,’ saying the fellow Baltimore State Attorney – who is also black – has ‘expressed disapproval of her both personally and professionally.’
The motion added that the Democrat prosecutor repeatedly questioned Mosby’s ability as an attorney, and spread false rumors the Baltimore DA had cheated on her husband, Baltimore Democratic City Council President Nick Mosby.
Well, there you have it…. it’s all about raaaacism.
Of course, it is.
