FBI Raids Annapolis Consulting Firm

FBI Raids Annapolis Consulting Firm

Jayne Miller of WBAL-TV first began to tweet about the execution of a search warrant on a GOP fundraising/consulting office, and what followed was plenty of speculation.

FBI agents on Thursday conducted an investigation at the offices of the Republican campaign consulting firm Strategic Campaign Group, the Baltimore Sun reports.

FBI spokeswoman Linday Ram told the newspaper that the investigation is being run out of the bureau's Washington field office. There's now no indication that this raid has anything to do with the FBI's Russian Federation probe, unlike what Twitter seems to believe.

In 2012, president of Strategic Campaign Group Kelly Rogers registered as a lobbyist for Prince George's Racing Ventures (Penn National), which sought to build a casino in the Maryland county.

The consulting firm's website describes their services as both fundraising and campaign consulting, including voter contact through direct mail and telephone, for candidates nationwide.

Former Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli of Virginia, who lost the state's 2013 race for governor, accused the firm in his lawsuit of "egregious abuse of the political process".

Cuccinelli later sued SCG and an associated PAC, alleging that it did not do the promised media buys with $2.2 million of donor funds. Calls to several of the group's officials weren't immediately returned.
