CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - Chicago Alderman Carrie Austin continues to duck questions about the federal raid at her ward office.
The raid happened Wednesday. The FBI confirmed it was conducting “court-authorized” activities in the area.
A FOX 32 source said the investigation is not connected to the ongoing investigation and criminal case against Ald. Ed Burke.
Austin cancelled a regularly scheduled ward meeting at the Shelden Heights Church, where a small group of constituents gathered, surprised. They said it was the first meeting, in recent memory, that Austin had missed.
Austin has not returned numerous calls and messages seeking comment.
