City Council President Nick Mosby said Monday he can't return money collected by a legal defense fund set up for him and his wife, Baltimore City State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby because he doesn't personally have the funds.
"There was never any money that was passed along," Nick Mosby said. "Not much money was collected so there's nothing to give back."
The Baltimore City Ethics Board last week said Nick Mosby violated city ethics rules with the creation of the fund and ordered him to return some of the donations.
Nick Mosby said he has been "fully transparent" during the Ethics Board's investigation and said he would "fully comply with the board."
Internal Revenue Service records show that public relations professional Robyn Murphy, a close friend of Marilyn Mo...

White House chief medical adviser Anthony Fauci on Sunday said if former President Trump wins the presidency again in 2024, Fauci will not return to serve Trump in the White House.
Fauci, the chief medical adviser to President Biden, gave CNN’s Jim Acosta a plain “no” when asked if he would work with the 45th president again.
“If you look at the history of what the response was during the administration, I think, you know, at best, you can say it wasn’t optimal,” Fauci said. “History will speak for itself about that.”
Trump has strongly suggested his intent to run in 2024 but has not formally announced a presidential bid.
Fauci, who also heads the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, publicly crossed Trump...

Two arrests were made after a fan of rival team Burnley FC was filmed making Nazi salutes during a home game against the Tottenham Hotspurs in London, England on Sunday.
A man in the visiting team area of the stands was filmed performing the antisemitic gesture while the man next to him pretended to cry in the direction of the Tottenham fans.
The men were removed from the stadium and then arrested by police, charged with a racially aggravated public order offence and placed in custody.
Commenting on the footage which quickly spread on social media, fans called the actions of the two men “shameful” and “disgusting,” with many calling for the two accused to be banned for life by the team.
"The club can confirm two visiting supporters have been identified and arres...
Amid the relentless violence in Baltimore, calls are growing louder for extra help.
Even city leaders are now saying more state intervention is needed. FOX45 spoke with a law enforcement expert on how this could save lives.
In just the last week the city saw a pregnant woman and her unborn baby targeted. City violence ripping the child's life apart before it even began.
The senseless violence has some asking what is the breaking point?
"Nobody wants to keep responding to someone being shot or a pregnant woman and a child being shot," says former FBI agent Dr. Tyrone Powers.
Doctors at Johns Hopkins made an emergency delivery of the baby Thursday. The child is fighting for its life.
At the shooting scene in east Baltimore that claimed the life of the baby's mother and father...
Baltimore City Council President Nick Mosby and Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby's joint legal defense fund website is not currently in operation. The webpage displays a statement "maintenance mode on " with no other options available on the site.
A Donorbox site apparently connected to the Mosbys (donorboxorg/the-mosby-s-2021-trust) is also down. It displays an error indicating the page is not available.
FOX45 News has reached out to the city council president for comment.
The change comes after Thursday's ruling from the Baltimore City Ethics Board that found Nick Mosby violated rules regarding a legal defense fund created to help him and his wife, Marilyn Mosby, to offset the cost of legal fees during a federal investigation.
The U.S. death toll from COVID-19 hit 1 million on Monday, a once-unimaginable figure that only hints at the multitudes of loved ones and friends staggered by grief and frustration.
The confirmed number of dead is equivalent to a 9/11 attack every day for 336 days. It is roughly equal to how many Americans died in the Civil War and World War II combined. It's as if Boston and Pittsburgh were wiped out.
"It is hard to imagine a million people plucked from this earth," said Jennifer Nuzzo, who leads a new pandemic center at the Brown University School of Public Health in Providence, Rhode Island. "It's still happening and we are letting it happen."
Some of those left behind say they cannot return to normal. They replay their loved ones' voicemail messages. Or watch old vide...
