FBI Investigates Oakland City Hall For Corruption

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Oakland city officials say they are ready to cooperate with federal authorities investigating allegations of corruption at City Hall.
The FBI has requested city documents as part of its probe of alleged nepotism and fraud under former City Administrator Deborah Edgerly.
Mayor Ron Dellums fired Edgerly in July amid a police probe into whether she had interfered with an investigation into a violent street gang.
City officials say the federal investigation seems to be expanding into questionable payroll practices, including $3 million in bonuses and other perks awarded with little oversight.
Court documents show that authorities are also scrutinizing personnel records for Edgerly and her son and daughter - all of whom were city employees.
