FBI Raids Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao's Home in Public Corruption Investigation

Federal Agents Search Multiple Properties Tied to Mayor and Influential Recycling Family.

In a significant development, federal law enforcement officials raided the home of Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao, a Democrat, on Thursday morning. The raid is part of a broader investigation into public corruption, involving multiple properties and an influential local family.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the FBI also executed search warrants at the homes of David Duong, president and CEO of recycling company Cal Waste Solutions, his son Andy Duong, and their company offices. The Duong family is known for their political influence and connection to Oakland's curbside recycling program.

Key Points:

  • The FBI raid on Mayor Sheng Thao's home involved more than a dozen agents, who removed various items including paper boxes, clipboards, and large plastic tubs.

  • The investigation reportedly involves public corruption and includes the IRS and the U.S. Postal Service.

  • Additional properties connected to the Duong family were also searched as part of the investigation.

The FBI released a statement confirming the operation, saying, “The FBI is conducting court authorized law enforcement activity on Maiden Lane. We are unable to provide additional information at this time.”

Investigative reporter Dan Noyes indicated that sources within law enforcement disclosed the raid's connection to a public corruption probe involving Mayor Thao and her boyfriend. This investigation is reportedly extensive, involving not only the FBI but also the IRS and the U.S. Postal Service.

This incident is the latest in a series of federal criminal investigations targeting Democratic officials. Recent months have seen probes into Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), and Hunter Biden. Additionally, federal agents have seized devices from New York City Mayor Eric Adams (D) and raided properties linked to George Soros-backed District Attorney Jody Owens.

The unfolding investigation into Mayor Thao and associated parties underscores the ongoing challenges of public corruption and the critical role of federal agencies in maintaining governmental integrity. The impact of these raids and the subsequent findings will likely have significant ramifications for Oakland's political landscape.
