Baltimore Police officer who ran for mayor is charged by state prosecutor with election crimes

March 30, 2021

A Baltimore Police officer who sought the Republican nomination for mayor was indicted last week by the Office of the State Prosecutor for lying about being a city resident. Ivan Gonzalez was charged with perjury, falsifying voter registration and related charges after being indicted by a grand jury following an internal police department investigation. The Sun first reported on Gonzalez’s apparent residency discrepancy in August. Gonzalez declined to comment at the time, telling a reporter, “You guys are fake news.”
