FBI caught bugging Philadelphia Mayor’s office

Federal law enforcement officials on Wednesday confirmed that listening devices found in the offices of Mayor John F. Street were planted by the FBI.

Street issued a statement late Wednesday saying that one of his advisers had been told by the U.S. Attorney’s office that the mayor was not the target of an investigation.

So why were they bugging him?

“The timing of the discovery of these listening devices seems incredibly strange, seeing that we are four weeks out of the election, and we have a Democratic mayor ahead in the polls, and we are on the eve of the first mayoral debate,” Street campaign spokesman Frank Keel said.

Oh, that’s why… Hmm, I don’t recall the FBI bugging white Republican mayors do you? I’m sure this bugging a Black Democratic mayor was just some kind of terrible mistake, right?
