    FBI agents seeking evidence in an investigation of Trenton, NJ Mayor Tony Mack are looking for information about vendor contracts with the city, according to a new report.

    FBI agents are seeking evidence of bribery, fraud, extortion and money laundering as they investigate the mayor of Trenton.

    Documents obtained by The Times of Trenton show agents also are investigating vendor contracts with the city.

    Agents last week searched City Hall offices and the homes of Mayor Tony Mack, his brother and a campaign donor.

    Mack's two years in office have been marked by accusations of cronyism and mismanagement. The Democrat's only public comment has been to say he has not violated the public trust.

    Watch the entire exchange when NBC10's Lu Ann Cahn encountered a singing security guard at Trenton City Hall, who blocked the entrance to Mayor Tony Mack's office. The guard, a self-described gospel singer, said she had orders Wednesday to keep reporters away from the second floor mayor's office. Mayor Mack's home was searched by FBI agents Wednesday and the FBI searched City Hall offices on Thursday, without revealing the focus of the investigation.

    Mack is out of town on vacation and is due to return on Monday.
