The 14 members of the Baltimore City Council requested Monday for Mayor Catherine E. Pugh’s resignation over her ongoing children’s book scandal, The Washington Post reports. In a two-sentence letter, the council said the “entire membership of the Baltimore City Council believes that it is not in the best interest of the City of Baltimore for you to continue to serve as Mayor. We urge you to tender your resignation, effective immediately.” Pugh, who recently took an indefinite leave of absence for ‘medical issues,’ has been “recovering from pneumonia and regaining her health,” said a statement issued by her office. “She fully intends to resume the duties of her office and continuing her work on behalf of the people and the City of Baltimore.”
