Homes, offices of Tennessee state lawmakers raided by FBI agents

Federal authorities raided homes and offices of several Tennessee lawmakers on Friday, including the property of former state House Speaker Glen Casada, officials said.

FBI agents searched residences with “addresses associated with” Casada, fellow GOP state Reps. Robin Smith and Todd Warner and Casada’s former chief of staff, Cade Cothren, said David Boling, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Nashville.

Several lawmaker offices were also raided on Friday, but Boling declined to identify those targets.

“I can only confirm the presence of FBI agents at these locations and cannot comment on the nature,” Boling told NBC News.
