Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam Back to Work, Still Not Speaking, After FBI Raid of Home

FBI, IRS agents executed a search warrant on Frank Gilliam's North Ohio Avenue home Monday. On Tuesday, the Atlantic City mayor was back in the office but not commenting about the raid.

Atlantic City Mayor Frank Gilliam Jr. was back at work in City Hall Tuesday, a day after federal agents raided his home.

Gilliam, through a spokesperson, declined to comment Tuesday and news media were told they weren't allowed to access the seventh floor of City Hall where the mayor's office is located.

After a back-and forth, NBC10's Ted Greenberg was allowed to go the city clerk's office on the seventh floor to fill out an Open Public Records Act request. As he stepped off the elevator he was met by the mayor's chief of staff, Maisha Scudder-Moore, who said Giliam would have no comment Tuesday.

"He just doesn’t have a comment about the situation at this time," Scudder-Moore said. "His attorneys probably have told him not to have a comment too, so I’ve been told he does not have a comment at this time.”

Scudder-Moore said she didn’t know who Gilliam’s attorney is. It was not clear whether Gilliam has hired a lawyer.

The FBI and IRS sent agents to Gilliam's Ohio Avenue home Monday, emerging with white cardboard boxes and computer equipment that they placed in sport utility vehicles and took with them.

The FBI says it was executing a search warrant, but won't say anything beyond that.

There was no indication of criminal charges having been filed against the mayor as of Tuesday.
