Feds Raid Home, Office Of RI House Speaker
" PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Law enforcement officials raided the office and home of House Speaker Gordon Fox on Friday as part of an investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office, the FBI, IRS and state police.

Authorities entered Fox’s Statehouse office carrying an evidence bag and empty cardboard boxes Friday morning. Fox’s spokesman, Larry Berman, said state police had asked everyone working in the office to leave, but he didn’t know why.

A few state police officers stood outside the closed door to the Democratic House speaker’s office.

Several news outlets reported that Fox returned to his home on the East Side of Providence on Friday afternoon, shortly after FBI agents removed boxes from his house. He did not comment.

Jim Martin, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, wouldn’t comment when asked whether the House speaker was being investigated. He said two federal search warrants had been executed, but he wouldn’t say whether they were connected to Fox.

Fox has represented Providence for more than two decades in the state’s part-time General Assembly, and he became the nation’s first openly gay House speaker in 2010 "
