Redevelopment Agency Reportedly Under Probe

From Times Wire Reports

A federal investigation into possible city government corruption in Philadelphia has spread to a waterfront development project and the city agency responsible for it, according to a published report.

The Redevelopment Authority, which annually allocates millions of dollars in federal, state and city money to troubled areas, received a subpoena last week related to the Penn's Landing development, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. The agency's chairman, John J. Dougherty, is a close ally of Mayor John Street.
