GARY, Ind. - Federal agents raided a northwestern Indiana township trustee's office Thursday, although they stayed mum on the reasons for the raid.

FBI agents were joined with officers from the Indiana State Police and the IRS in a sweep of Calumet Township Trustee Mary Elgin's office in Gary on Thursday.

Call 6 Investigator Kara Kenny found a 2011 audit of the trustee's office that raised concerns about the township's finances, including nine employees with take-home cars.

And every time one of us posts an article like this on FR, we need to put “Democrat” first in the Title Bar; that way, a simple Google search on the story’s subject will turn up and immediately him / her as a Democrat.

Just like the media does when a GOP critter gets busted.

Has the FBI had a cleansing of their conscience?

Or is a message being sent by all this?

Calumet is not far from Chicago, IIRC.

Arpaio must indeed have universe-shattering dirt on Obamatollah, bc the Marxists are in Cleanup Mode.

By ‘busting’ their fellow criminals now (while still in power) Hussein/Holder’s FBI can:

#1 Cut deals to keep the perps from squealing. Easy quick jail term with Swiss Bank account waiting for them on the other side.

#2 If a perp gets crazy and refuses to play ball, he gets a 100-year sentence.

#3 If a perp is about to squeal on Obama to avoid ANY jail time, he gets ‘Fuddied’ in his cell before he can testify.

Maybe they’re becoming aware of being number 35 on the commie’s plan to dismantle them and they’re fighting back:

1963 Communist Goals
The following was entered into the Congressional record by Albert Herlong, Jr. (a Floridian who served in Congress from 1949-69) in 1963.

#35) Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI

Democrats don’t make rules for themselves and don’t expect Rats in public office to obey them either.

Why do they never mention the party when Democrats are involved. There is actually a simple, innocent explanation:

Man bites dog = News

Has someone in the FBI gone rogue?

Or has someone decided to send a message to the Administration?

They are getting all the Democrats now so that people will forget by the November elections.

The Republican indictments will start about three weeks before the November elections.

They are cleaning house of the corruption before the election far enough in advance so that the idiotic public voters will forget before they vote.

“Clintonistas doing a little spring cleaning?”

That was my first thought also.

She needs the repubs to win big in November so they can take the blame for all the screw ups for 2 years.

Hillary especially needs a repub win if she runs third party on her “Third Way” idea that both parties are equally bad.

What the heck is going on? Have they decided their only hope is to start cracking down because dims will lose big and then there will be others in charge? Have they decided that the dims are a huge threat to the republic and if they don’t act now all is lost?

Enquiring minds want to know
