All those who want to argue that State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has become more celebrity than public servant ever since she announced charges for the six Baltimore police officers in the death of Freddie Gray just got a big assist from Philly.com.

Columnist Janice Armstrong describes Mosby’s recent appearance at an NAACP brunch in almost reverential terms. Mosby is referred to as “an overnight sensation,” a “superstar,” and “America’s ‘it girl'” (Though, to be fair, that last one is qualified with an “if you will.”) Attendees are depicted as starstruck.

Armstrong even recalls the powerful experience of listening to the news conference in which Mosby announced the charges.

Mosby’s supposed love of the spotlight has been an issue for the attorneys for the six Baltimore police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray. They’ve used Mosby’s recent string of public and media appearances as the basis for several filings.

  1. I am tired of Baltimore political public figures using their positions to become media darlings. Give me an old-fashioned nose to the grind stone get it done persona who is focused on BALTIMORE not where they are headed next.
