The Facts

  • Marilyn Mosby, Baltimore's state attorney, has been indicted on charges including perjury.

  • Federal prosecutors allege that, to buy Florida vacation homes, Mosby lied about being qualified to withdraw large sums from a retirement fund and misstated her financial position on mortgage applications.

The Spin

Right narrative

Mosby is the new face of the lawless, progressive Left. She has been soft on crime and too quick to prosecute police. Now her own personal corruption has been revealed.

Left narrative

The charges are a politically motivated attack, arriving just five months before she was set to be re-elected on the merits of her progressive approach to prosecution.
