Labor Raid Update

The Politicker’s Azi Paybarah was turned away from the Central Labor Council’s West 15th street office after seeing at least three FBI agents combing over the third-floor headquarters, other agents in the building, and a blue FBI van pulling away out front.

Azi reports that he was kind enough to open the door for three more FBI agents in windbreakers, entering the building carrying stacks of empty cardboard boxes.

A person who identified himself as the CLC’s secretary told The Politicker that Central Labor Council chief Brian McLaughlin was apparently not in the building at the time of the raid.
