FBI Searches U.S. Senator’s Home Amid Corruption Probe
WASHINGTON (CNN) — FBI and Internal Revenue Service agents searched the Alaska home of longtime Sen. Ted Stevens on Monday amid a corruption probe that already has snared two oil-company executives and a state lobbyist.
Dave Heller, an FBI spokesman in Anchorage, Alaska, confirmed that agents entered Stevens’ home Monday afternoon, but he referred further comment to the Justice Department.
Neither the senator nor any family members were home at the time, Heller said.
Stevens, 83, the Senate’s senior Republican, has been under federal investigation for a 2000 renovation project more than doubling the size of his home in Girdwood, Alaska, near Anchorage, The Associated Press reported.
The project was overseen by Bill Allen, a contractor who has pleaded guilty to bribing Alaska state legislators.
