Feds raid NJ capital's city hall one day after searching mayor's home

Federal agents raided City Hall in New Jersey's capital on Thursday, one day after they swarmed the home of the city's mayor, as well as those of his brother and a campaign supporter.

"The FBI is executing search warrants at various offices at Trenton City Hall, pursuant to an ongoing investigation," FBI Public Affairs Officer Barbara Woodruff said.

    No explanation of WHY in this blurb. Bad journalism. But typical of CNN.

      If they knew, they would say so. That a sitting mayor of a major city is under federal investigation is news in itself. The why will come out eventually.

      just don't say anything against CNN's savior obomba and you'll be ok. You can say things like: I wanna do banansy in the butt or I like boogers or you eat poop but don't dare say anything against obombacare or your comments will be deleted

    it's an active investigation...give them a bit of leeway. Never mind innocent until proven guilty.

    There will be pleanty of time later to over react and tar and feather people.

    Why are you on the CNN website reading their articles if you think they are liars and don't like them? Nobody is forcing you to read the reports that they write. Grow up.

    I actually agree with the sarcastic one's. This is an incredibly incomplete post. Imma check Fox News.

    If CNN is going to like this they should put it in a scrolling blog. This does not rise to the level of an article.

    @Jayjay – Repeating lies does not make them truths. However, if you're going to persist in such nonsense, at least have the courtesy to do this in an article that's at least tangentially related to your rant.

    Ok, next time youre gonna start Making up inaccurate quotes, you probably shouldn't lead with a comment about boogers and butts anf eating poop, it really detracts from any chance you had of tricking people. thanks for the laughs, though. oh and i just got out the unabridged dictionary, 4000 pages and print so small it came with a magnifying glass, And "banansy" definitely isnt a word. go read a book for crying out loud.
