    Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh (D) has gone missing after the FBI and IRS raided her home, according to Baltimore CBS affiliate WJZ.

    Jason Bentley, Pugh's spokesman, told the Associated Press on Thursday that he has no clue where the Mayor is, while her defense attorney, Steve Silverman, routed calls to voicemail.

    According to the report, "Pugh was at her home when the raid began, but has since left the state."

    Federal agents leave City Hall in the investigation into Mayor Catherine Pugh's business dealings. The mayor's second floor offices are one of several locations raided on Thursday morning.
    Pugh was asked to resign by Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan shortly after the raids. "Today, agents for the FBI and the IRS executed search warrants at the mayor’s homes and offices," said Hogan. "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."

    Neighbors say they haven't seen her in weeks. Others were devastated at news of the raid.




    This is Michelle Hopkins from Park Heights. She is fed up with the headlines at City Hall and, in her words, devastated by the news of today’s FBI raids. #WJZ

    Baltimore mayor not lucid enough to decide whether to resign

    Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh is sick and not “lucid” enough to decide whether to resign over a federal investigation into shady sales of a children’s book she authored, her lawyer said Thursday.
    The embattled Democrat was at her house during an FBI and IRS raid on the property earlier Thursday and met with a doctor there, said her attorney Steve Silverman.
    An earlier report from local outlet WJZ quoted sources saying Pugh had skipped town. But her lawyer — whose office was also raided by the feds — said he met with her for an hour at her Ashburton house, according to The Baltimore Sun.
    “She understands the predicament of the city… she just needs to be physically and mentally sound and lucid enough to make decisions,” Silverman said.
    “She is generally aware that there is a consensus that she should resign. For people to make material decisions in their life, they have to be at a certain level of stability,” he added.
    The growing controversy over the sale of her “Healthy Holly” series to the University of Maryland Medical System while she was on its board of directors has made it harder for Pugh, 69, to recover from a bout of pneumonia, her lawyer said. She also now has bronchitis, he said, and plans to see a doctor at home again Friday.
    Pugh cited the illness as the reason for taking an indefinite leave of absence April 1 — when the Gov. Larry Hogan called on the Maryland Office of the State Prosecutor to open a probe into Pugh’s “questionable dealings.”
    The governor called on Pugh to resign Thursday, echoing the Baltimore City Council and Baltimore lawmakers in the House of Delegates.
    “[Pugh] is leaning toward making the best decision in the best interest in the citizens of Baltimore City,” her attorney said.

    He claimed “nothing incriminating” had come out of the house during the raid.
