On Monday morning, FBI agents raided the home of Democrat Mayor Frank Gilliam of Atlantic City, who only three weeks ago was reportedly in a fight outside a nightclub.
According to NJ.com, Doreen Holder, a public affairs specialist with the FBI’s Newark office, stated, “We can confirm that our agents were executing search warrant at the home of Mayor Frank Gilliam.” One source told NJ.com that about a dozen agents entered Gilliam’s home.
The alleged fight three weeks ago precipitated municipal criminal summons. In two of the summons, accusers of Gilliam said he allegedly swung at two people, but did not hit anyone; those summons also stated that Gilliam reportedly “kept trying to attack” one of the witnesses. Another witness said Gilliam chased the person around in a car. Atlantic City Councilman Jeffree Fauntleroy II was also reportedly involved; he allegedly repeatedly punched a person in the face, hurled the person to the floor, and chased him. Another charge against him: threatening a woman, allegedly saying he would “f*** you up.”
The investigation moved from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office to the Cape May County Prosecutor’s Office to avoid a conflict of interest. – READ MORE
