Baltimore has one of the more notorious “progressive” prosecutors around, Marilyn Mosby. Apart from her other accomplishments, such as failing to win a single conviction in the Freddie Gray case, which she and other Leftists hyped relentlessly for its political effect, Ms. Mosby is currently under federal indictment for cheating to obtain a government loan as part of COVID relief. Like defendants everywhere, she’s seeking to postpone her trial, and claiming that the case against her is a product of — ready now? — the Biden Administration’s racism.
Is there anything these people won’t say?
Of course the main problem with Ms. Mosby is not her cheating or her excessively political bent. It’s that the Baltimore murder rate, already a scandal, has spiked under the lax sentencing she happily supports, as illustrated here.
