” Federal agents sought evidence of child pornography last week when they seized computers from the Elgin district office of former state Rep. Keith Farnham, who resigned Wednesday, according to a search warrant released Friday.

  In addition, a federal agent on Thursday took a laptop computer that Farnham used in the Illinois House chamber, and last week agents removed a computer from a legislative office building next to the Capitol, according to the documents and an interview with a state technology official.

  Farnham handed in his resignation on Wednesday, saying he was “battling serious health issues for a number of years.” He had won the Democratic primary on Tuesday, running unopposed.

  Democratic leaders from the area will choose Farnham’s replacement.

  The federal investigation came to light last week when authorities acknowledged search warrants were executed at Farnham’s Elgin district office and home. Several computers and equipment were seized at Farnham’s district office, as well as a computer from his office near the Capitol, according to federal records obtained by the Tribune using the Illinois Freedom of Information Act.”:

 

 

     The Dems are well represented in the FBI caseload these days … first we had the FBI and IRS raiding Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox’s office as part of an ongoing corruption investigation , next up comes California Rep and anti-gun hypocrite Leland Yee on suspicion of gun trafficking charges and now we get a raid on that “tireless advocate of children’s rights” Keith Farnham being investigated for child pornography .

   What a week for the champions of the little guy , and who could forget Dingy Harry Reid’s adventures in nepotism and illegal campaign spending ? 

 

   PS: We nearly forgot about Yee’s partner in crime , Dem State Senator Ron Calderon … They’ve got enough for a basketball team , how long before they can field a baseball team ?

 

   PPS:  Here’s another player under investigation … Calumet Township Trustee Mary Elgin‘s office has been raided by the FBI and IRS .
