WEIRD NEWS: Brought to you by
Baltimore’s mayor will take an indefinite leave from office after news emerged that she secured a lucrative sales deal with the University of Maryland Medical System for a kids book series she wrote — while she sat on its board. Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Monday she will step away from the job as she faced intensifying backlash for netting more than $500,000 from the sale of the books, secured with a no-contract bid arrangement with the institution. While a UMMS board member, Pugh cashed checks from book sales as part of a deal made in 2011 with the medical system to distribute her self-published “Healthy Holly” illustrated series to Baltimore schoolchildren. The Democrat — who became mayor in 2016 — called the deal a regrettable mistake last week in a news conference. She recently returned $100,000 to the medical system and resigned from the board, which she served on for nearly two decades.

But according to reports, 26-year-old Jenny Ambuila’s whirlwind lifestyle was put on hold Friday when she was busted during a Colombian vacation in connection with an overseas money-laundering scheme. The University of Miami graduate faces money-laundering charges after investigators say they uncovered a massive web of corruption at the Colombian port of Buenaventura, where her father was employed as a customs officer. Her father, Omar Ambuila, is accused of pocketing more than a million dollars in bribes to allow untaxed goods into the country. Some of the embezzled funds reportedly were used to pay for his daughter’s college tuition at the University of Miami, where she posted on Instagram about the college campus with the caption “#richkids.” (
