FBI and IRS agents descended on the South Philadelphia office of State Rep. William F. Keller (D.-Phila.) and the home of Philadelphia Traffic Court Judge Robert Mulgrew this morning.
FBI Special Agent J.J. Klaver confirmed agents from the two law enforcement organizations were at both locations, but declined to provide other details. He would not say if the agents were executing a search warrant. They were accompanied by uniformed Philadelphia police.
. . . Keller, who represents the 184th district, was elected to the state house in 1993. The 59-year-old former longshoreman is chairman of the commerce committee, vice chairman of appropriations committee, and chairman of the Committee on Committees, according to his website.
He also serves on the gaming oversight, labor relations, and urban affairs committees.
Keller has been a leading proponent of dredging the Delaware River to deepen the shipping lanes and sponsored a bill to expand the Port of Philadelphia.
