It’s Election Day in Maryland, and things didn’t start off the day as planned.
Imagine you are a leading candidate for your party to win the Mayoral race and you get a call that your campaign workers are trashing your headquarters of non-payment. That’s something nobody would ever expect to see flashing across the TV as voters were going to the polls.
Well, that’s what happened to Catherine Pugh, candidate for Mayor of Baltimore, MD.
Nearly 100 poll workers showed up at her headquarters Tuesday morning expecting to get paid. They had all completed poll training and were assigned to work for Pugh. However, some were turned away, told they weren’t needed and wouldn’t be paid.
This resulted in many workers getting upset and taking their anger out on the campaign property.
Pugh says it was all a misunderstanding.
“We finally got it under wraps and those people will be paid today. We’ll be broke at the end of this but it’s okay. I’d rather see it go to the campaign workers and the people out there are are unemployed who need an opportunity to work today so we’re okay,” said Pugh.
Here’s the video report:
