The FBI Is Searching The Home Of Council Member, Jack Evans

Right now law enforcement has converged on the home of embattled DC Councilmember Jack Evans.

News sources are only saying that the activity at his home in Georgetown is connected to a “court issued order”. There is police tape around the home and a section of the street is blocked from pedestrian and vehicle travel.

Yesterday, Evans submitted a letter to the Chair of the City Council Phil Mendelson informing him that he was resigning as the chair for Metro’s Board. His letter of resignation follows the Washington Post publishing a confidential 20 -page memo written by an independent law firm that was hired to look into claims of ethic’s violations.

Evans the longest-serving lawmaker on the city council has been under increased pressure following information that he used council email to drum up business for his law firm. The council voted to reprimand him and to strip him of his chairmanship of the powerful Finance and Revenue Committee.
