WATCH: Feds Raid Prominent Democrat's Home, Office

A growing scandal over a children's book and allegations of cronyism has literally come knocking on Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh's door.

Early today, federal authorities swarmed the mayor's home and offices regarding the "Healthy Holly" scandal over whether she profited from improper book deals she received while serving as mayor of the Democratic-dominated city. 

The Daily Wire's James Barret has more:
 

"The FBI Baltimore office and IRS Criminal Division out of DC are executing search warrants at Pugh's home, a business address, an aide's home and Baltimore City Hall, an FBI spokesman said," NBC Baltimore affiliate WBAL-TV 11 reported Thursday.

Videos posted online show multiple FBI agents joined by at least one IRS agent converging on Pugh's northwest Baltimore home, which WBAL-TV says she purchased in December 2016, as well as another house she reportedly owns nearby.

"The agents have been seen entering and exiting the home, as well as garages, which may belong to the home, or a neighboring home. Agents retrieved a couple of large boxes from the garages," the outlet reports. "Around the corner, agents are serving a search warrant at the home where Pugh lived for many years, which is linked to the Healthy Holly scandal."

...

According to neighbors, Pugh has not been seen at her home in over a month, though Fox45 reported that she was "inside her house" at one point during the raid. Pugh has been on administrative leave over what she says are "health issues."
