FBI Conducts Probe Into Dolton Village Hall Amid Allegations Surrounding Mayor

The FBI confirmed on Friday that they were carrying out a court-authorized action at Dolton Village Hall. 

An FBI spokesperson stated that agents were engaged in law enforcement activity in the area as authorized by the court. They did not provide details about the raid or any ongoing investigation, citing Department of Justice policy.

According ABC7, FBI agents served two subpoenas at Dolton Village Hall to acquire personnel records, including those of police officers, along with business records. 

The south suburb of Dolton has been facing scandal for weeks. Former Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was hired by the Dolton Village Board to investigate allegations of corruption and theft by Mayor Tiffany Henyard. Henyard vetoed the board’s request for a federal investigation into her conduct.

Lightfoot’s tasks include uncovering millions in unpaid bills in Dolton and examining a village-funded trip to Las Vegas taken by Henyard, several trustees, and village employees last year.

Additionally, Henyard faces accusations of wrongful termination from three former employees who refused to engage in political work for her. She is also named in a sexual assault lawsuit along with village trustee Andrew Holmes, filed by a Dolton police officer who previously worked on the mayor’s security detail.

Moreover, a senior administrator of Dolton and Thornton Township was also recently charged in federal court with engaging in a bankruptcy fraud scheme.
