Cheryl Glenn, the Baltimore Democrat who abruptly resigned her long-held seat in the Maryland House of Delegates last week, has been indicted on federal bribery and wire fraud charges, prosecutors said Monday.
U.S. Attorney Robert K. Hur said Glenn accepted $33,750 in bribes from “an associate” in exchange for voting for a bill last year that increased the number of state medical cannabis licenses and for helping to create a new liquor license in her East Baltimore district.
She’s the second state delegate to resign amid federal charges this year. Last month, Tawanna P. Gaines, a Prince George’s Democrat, resigned just before pleading guilty in federal court to using campaign funds for personal purposes.
Glenn abruptly resigned from the legislature Wednesday night; an aide delivered her resignation letter to the office of House Speaker Adrienne A. Jones.
