TRENTON, N.J. —FBI agents raided City Hall in New Jersey’s capital on Thursday, a day after searching the home of the city’s embattled mayor, his brother and a campaign donor.
The FBI said it had a search warrant for several offices but declined to be more specific.
Recently appointed city business administrator Sam Hutchinson, whose department was among those being searched, told The Trentonian newspaper that FBI agents were also in the office of Mayor Tony Mack (pictured).

“The FBI is searching through documents in his office,” he told the newspaper.
Mack, 46, on Wednesday denied wrongdoing after the FBI spent the overnight hours searching his home, and the homes of his brother, Ralphiel Mack, and businessman Joseph Giorgianni, a campaign donor who is a convicted sex offender. An email message left Thursday for the mayor’s top aide was not immediately returned.
The Democrat’s first two years in office have been marked by repeated accusations of reckless spending, cronyism and mismanagement.
