Federal agents have reportedly raided the 34th Ward office of Chicago Alderman Carrie Austin’s campaign office.
Austin is the second-longest serving alderman on the City Council behind 14th Ward Ald. Ed Burke, whose offices were raided last year and is currently facing dozens of political corruption charges. She has not reportedly been charged with any crimes at this time.
The FBI has confirmed that they are “conducting court-authorized law enforcement activities” in the area of her office.
