We’re hearing from Mayor Catherine Pugh’s lawyer after federal agents raided her home and several businesses Thursday.
CBS Baltimore reports Pugh was home at when the FBI and IRS arrived and met with her legal team once they left.
Attorney Steve Silverman said the mayor is physically ill and emotionally saddened. He said she apologized for letting down the people of Baltimore with any appearance of wrongdoing.
Silverman also told reporters he’s discussing Mayor Pugh’s options with her, saying she’s not in a good place mentally or physically to make any firm decision at this time.
Two online petitions are pressuring Pugh to step down, including one led by state Republican Party official Tony Campbell.
