Pugh on Monday, March 18, 2019, stepped down from the University of Maryland Medical System’s board of directors, days after it came to light that the hospital network had for years purchased her self-published children’s books. Board positions are unpaid, but The Baltimore Sun reported last week that around a third of the board received compensation through the UMMS network's contracts with their businesses. The newspaper revealed that Pugh failed to fully disclose a $500,000 business relationship she began with the 11-hospital network in 2011.(AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File)
