Agents from the Pennsylvania attorney general's office paid a recent visit to two district offices belonging to a Philadelphia-area state senator apparently in a search for information about improper political activity.
Sen. Leanna Washington, D-Philadelphia, said in a statement through a spokeswoman that the agents arrived at her Philadelphia and Montgomery County offices on Friday.
Washington's office would not immediately say what they agents wanted or what they took. But two people familiar with a search warrant provided by the attorney general's office said the agents were seeking boxes of information or paraphernalia related to political activity and copies of information on the offices' computers.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter.
Joe Peters, a spokesman for Attorney General Kathleen Kane, a Democrat, said Sunday that he could not confirm or deny whether the office's agents searched Washington's offices or the existence of any investigation into Washington.
