FBI Requests Jim Kenney Campaign Documents

Federal agents have requested documents from Jim Kenney's mayoral campaign, a mayoral aide confirmed Friday.

The request was not made of the city, but rather, from the campaign committee that helped Kenney win the mayor's office last November, the mayor's spokeswoman, Lauren Hitt, said Friday.

Jessie Bradley, a representative with Kenney's campaign, confirmed the FBI requested documents saying they "are fully complying with the request."

Bradley would not say what types of documents were being provided citing a confidentiality request by authorities.

The document appeal comes weeks after the FBI raided offices and homes of powerful electricians union boss John Dougherty, a key Kenney supporter and Democratic power broker. Agents also searched the office of Councilman Bobby Henon.

No one has been charged with a crime and Dougherty denies any wrongdoing.

An FBI spokeswoman offered no comment on the situation.

Kenney took office in January after serving for two decades as an at-large city councilman.
