More than 100 politicians, union bosses and police officers have been charged with corruption in Michigan’s eastern district in 13 years
FBI agents reportedly raided the homes of two Detroit city councilmembers Wednesday morning, as part of a federal corruption investigation.
The FBI is executing search warrants at the homes of Detroit City Council members Janeé Ayers and Scott Benson, as well as offices in the city’s Coleman A. Young Municipal Center.
The FBI did not immediately return Fox News’s request for comment on the raids.
No criminal charges have been filed, according to The Detroit News, and the search warrants remain sealed in court.
The searches follow charges against councilman André Spivey three weeks ago, when he was charged on one count of conspiracy to commit bribery for allegedly accepting more than $35,000 to be “influenced and rewarded” for votes.
The raids are the largest federal investigation into Detroit city hall corruption since former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick was convicted eight years ago on racketeering conspiracy charges, the outlet reported.
More than 100 politicians, union bosses and police officers have been charged with corruption in Michigan‘s eastern district since 2008.
