Gallagher’s Office Raided by Police

Here's a story that broke too late for the dailies: The police have raided the district office of Councilman Dennis Gallagher of Queens.

According to NY1 News, the NYPD would only say that it was part of an ongoing investigation. Gallagher's lawyer said he was unaware of what the police may be investigating. Gallagher had no comment, according to the station.

Gallagher is one of only three Republicans on the City Council, and was a former chief of staff to Queens Republican Tom Ognibene (who later ran a primary against Michael Bloomberg).
