Dougherty’s Inner Circle Raided by the FBI

FBI agents have conducted more than a dozen raids this month at sites connected to Local 98 of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, the politically connected union headed by John J. Dougherty. Here are members of Dougherty’s inner circle who have been targeted in the raids.

Councilman Bobby Henon

District and City Hall offices searched Aug. 5

Henon, a former Local 98 political director, remains on the union's payroll as a $72,000-a-year staffer reporting to Dougherty. In an FBI raid this week on an office of Attorney General’s office agent Joseph Ralston, the federal officials sought any communications Ralston had with Henon, according to people familiar with the document. In Henon’s 2011-12 race for council, the union’s political action committees contributed more than $40,000 to his campaign.

Local 98 President

Brian Burrows

House searched Aug. 5

Burrows has been a partner with Dougherty in Doc's Union Pub at 1843 S. Second St. The bar was searched as part of the FBI’s sweep of union-linked facilities early this month.

Marita Crawford

House searched Aug. 5

Crawford, IBEW business agent and political director, ranks as one of the highest-paid officials in the local. Federal records show that she spends almost all of her time working on political activities for the union.

Dougherty

Moylan is chair of the

city’s Zoning Board of

Adjustment, Dougherty’s

chiropractor, and a former

He was a witness for Dougherty in a May 2014 fight involving union and non-union workers in Pennsport. That melee is under investigation by the state Attorney General’s Office.

 

Neill is head of the union’s apprentice program. He has been a partner with Dougherty and Burrows in Doc’s Union Pub.
