A lobbyist friend of Senator Barack Obama’s office was raided by the FBI, they raided Larry Walsh’s office, and that of his Chief of Staff, Matt Ryan. Story at Washington Times:
Mr. Walsh, who served in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2005, was endorsed by Mr. Obama in his county executive election bid. With the support of some of Mr. Obama’s U.S. Senate volunteers, he easily defeated incumbent Republican Joseph Mikan.
Will County auditor Steve Weber confirmed that his office had been asked by the FBI to assist in an investigation, but he did not elaborate on the specifics.
Apparently Walsh is not just an Obama supporter, but also a poker buddy.
