FBI agents on Thursday raided City Hall in Trenton, N.J., as part of an investigation into corruption.
“We have executed search warrants on various offices pursuant to an ongoing investigation,” FBI spokeswoman Barbara Woodruff said in a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times. She would not give any details about the nature of the investigation.
Trenton Mayor Tony F. Mack, whose home was searched Wednesday by the FBI, defended himself.
“I have not violated my duties or the public trust and have no further comment on this matter,” Mack said in a statement posted on the city’s website.
Trenton, the capital of New Jersey, is a city of about 85,000 located almost in the center of the state. Mack, 46, has faced allegations of corruption, cronyism and mismanagement since he took office in 2010.
