WASHINGTON -- The FBI is conducting a raid of D.C. Councilmember Jack Evans' home in the 3100 block of P Street in Northwest Friday morning.
Officials said the FBI is present for a court-authorized law enforcement activity in the Georgetown area, but cannot provide further details.
The chair of the D.C., transit authority announced his resignation hours after a legal memo became public and verified that he violated board ethics.
Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority Chair Jack Evans on Wednesday acknowledged he violated the ethics code by not disclosing a conflict of interest that netted him at least $50,000 a year from a local company. The District councilman previously denied any wrongdoing.
The board's ethics committee drew ire this week for not keeping written meeting minutes. It also didn't produce a formal, written report of its findings on Evans, whose relationship with private clients is under federal investigation. Committee Chair Clarence Crawford later approved the release of an outside law firm's confidential memo on the probe that said Evans knowingly violated board ethics.
