On August 5th, Philadelphia Councilman Bobby Henon’s office was raided by the FBI.
For weeks, the Councilman refused to comment on this occurrence.
After staying quiet for a month Henon was finally confronted by the press yesterday, his first day back from the summer break.
“My work in government hasn’t stopped, and my work in government I’m proud of, and my work in government will continue. My office has been serving the Sixth District and the city of Philadelphia,” Henon said. “I have no other comments.”
According to Tricia L. Nadolny of the Inquirer, investigators were looking for connections between Henon and Joe Ralston, an agent at the AG’s office. Both Henon and Ralston have ties to John Dougherty and the IBEW 98, who were the main targets of the raid.
