( 4UMF NEWS ) FBI Raids City Hall:
FBI agents searched offices in Trenton City Hall Thursday, a day after the feds raided the home of Trenton’s mayor, whose two-year administration of New Jersey’s impoverished capital city has been marked by accusations of nepotism and reckless spending.
A city worker who asked not to be identified told NBC 4 New York that FBI agents were seen searching the mayor’s second-floor offices and the city’s economic development offices on the third floor.
“What took them so long to get here?” questioned city councilman and former police officer George Muschal. “I felt there was full-blown corruption here two years ago, and I still stand by it.”
The search of City Hall comes one day after FBI agents searched the home of Trenton Mayor Tony Mack. They also searched the homes of his brother Ralphiel Mack and campaign contributor Joseph “JoJo” Giorgianni.
On Wednesday morning, hours after the FBI’s predawn raid of his home, Mack, 46, denied any wrongdoing.
“We have not violated the public trust nor have I violated any of my public duties and that’s all I have to say on the matter,” he said.
No arrests have been made and an FBI spokeswoman declined to comment, except to confirm searches are underway in connection with an ongoing investigation. A spokeswoman for U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman also declined to comment.
