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.

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).
