FBI Investigating Congressman Tim Mahoney
LABELLE, FL. -- According to the AP, the FBI is checking to see if Congressman Tim Mahoney broke any laws or misused federal funds after hiring a mistress to work for him. The report also says Mahoney was having a second extra-marital affair with a high-level official in his district, and the agents want to know if his push for federal emergency funds for her county might have been related.
Mahoney did help get emergency status for Glades county, after it was initially denied by the federal government, but the report claims a Martin county "high-level" county manager was the second mistress. Martin county received $3.4 million from FEMA during the alleged affair.
Mahoney had campaigned on a family values and return to morality platform when he was elected to Congress two years ago. His recent tv campaign pleads for making fuel out of citrus waste.
