The FBI and Michigan State Police executed search warrants on the Lansing office and Highland Park home of Democratic Senator Bert Johnson. Investigators did not give any details about the nature of the investigation. An unidentified man who was with the team of investigators leaving the Senate building said – “We had investigative activity here in the Senate, but that’s all I’m going to say.” Johnson has had financial troubles in the past, including unpaid fundraising bills. In 2015, Johnson had a bench warrant issued in Illinois after failing to pay for political fundraising work.
