Feds Have Been Investigating Chaka Fattah for *7 Years*

Runs in the family.


Fox 29 reports that the F.B.I. has issued a subpoena requesting U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah’s tax records, focused specifically on property that the congressman owns. More intriguingly, Fattah and his lawyer said he’s actually been under investigation since 2007. The subpoena is thought to have been issued as part of a grand jury investigation.

Perhaps they said this to brush it off–we’re used to it, no big deal–but in fact, the revelations only raise more questions about what sort of malfeasance the feds suspect him of. And of course, we’d be remiss not to mention the curious case of Fattah’s high-living son Chaka “Chip” Fattah Jr., who’s had myriad legal troubles of his own, and himself is under grand jury investigation.
