According to The Baltimore Sun, the IRS has filed a lien against Baltimore City's top prosecutor for years of unpaid taxes.
Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and husband Nick Mosby - Democratic nominee for City Council president - were slapped with a $45,000 lien via the IRS for three years of unpaid taxes. The lien showed the Mosbys owe $23,000 for 2014, more than $19,000 for 2015, and about $3,000 for 2016.
The Mosbys released a statement to members of the press from their respective offices that read:
"I have been in ongoing conversations with the IRS for five years about the tax consequences of an early withdrawal from my retirement savings plan, which I did to support unplanned expenses after a series of family tragedies," the statement said. "I expect to have the issue resolved in the coming days."
Fox 45 News points out, as per Maryland State Constitution, there is a possibility Marilyn Mosby could be removed from office:
" There shall be an Attorney for the State in each county and the City of Baltimore, to be styled "The State's Attorney," who shall be elected by the voters thereof, respectively, and shall hold his office for four years from the first Monday in January next ensuing his election, and until his successor shall be elected and qualified; and shall be re-eligible thereto, and be subject to removal therefrom, for incompetency, willful neglect of duty, or misdemeanor in office, on conviction in a Court of Law, or by a vote of two-thirds of the Senate, on the recommendation of the Attorney-General (amended by Chapter 99, Acts of 1956, ratified Nov. 6, 1956; Chapter 681, Acts of 1977, ratified Nov. 7, 1978)," part of the constitution reads.
Unpaid taxes are not the only probe swirling above the Mosbys; Marilyn is under investigation for having accepted luxury travel trips, free of charge. In the last two years, she's traveled to Germany, Portugal, Africa, and Scotland.
"When Operation Crime and Justice first reported on State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's extensive travel and side business, FOX 45 News filed several public information requests for pertinent documents," FOX 45 reported in September.
"Those requests were not fulfilled," Fox 45 said. "Instead, the State's Attorney's Office asked for thousands of dollars in exchange for certain public records, including $6,480 for specific email records and $156,000 for copies of Mosby's work calendar.
Marilyn has served half of her four-year term as the city's top prosecutor as she is now being investigated for potential ethics violations.
Readers may recall Marilyn mishandled the Freedie Gray case, where a young Black male died in police custody on April 2015. Uproar in the community of the death of Gray resulted in weeks of riots around the metro area.
And if the mounting potential ethics violations for Mosby wasn't enough for the liberal-run city, the former mayor, Catherine Pugh, is serving a three-year prison sentence for her book fraud scheme.
