CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, CLEVELAND, Ohio- News of a night time raid by the federal agencies of the IRS, FBI and HUD at the offices of City Hall on Wednesday in downtown Cleveland on Lakeside Avenue has spread throughout political and other circles.


"This likely means trouble for some people at City Hall," a  Black elected official told Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com on condition of anonymity


The Cleveland Plain Dealer, Ohio's largest newspaper, reported that Cleveland FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson also confirmed in an emailed statement that agents from the three federal agencies were at City Hall "after business hours for authorized law enforcement activity."


Federal agents seized file documents, including relative to Burton Scot Contractors, a based paving company out of Geuga County, and Pioneering Engineering, a company owned by city employee Khalil Ewais.


Ewais, 42, is an engineer who works out of the city's capital projects office who has not  been charged but is allegedly under investigation for having a possible unlawful interest in a business contract, a felony if charged.

 

Also at issue is the multi-million dollar Opportunity Corridor project, and a host of other city and county funded projects..


The  news of the now infamous raid hit the streets as all too familiar


Federal authorities, led led by the FBI and the IRS, raided the offices of former Cuyahoga County Commissioner Jimmy Dimora, former county auditor Frank Russo and two former common pleas judges in 2008 as part of an ongoing county public corruption probe.

 

And CMHA was raided too back then, its former executive chief, George Phillips-Oliver, ultimately sentenced to 10 months in prison for lying to federal agents.


The two judges at issue, both Democrats, and one Black and the other White, served prison time, one for 14 months for lying to the FBI, the other for some five years and three month for mortgage fraud and other federal convictions.


Also a former chairman of the Cuyahoga County Democratic Party, Dimora is serving a 28-year prison sentence for racketeering and other corruption-related crimes in office and Russo, a 22-year sentence, the aforementioned of whom are among some 61 Democratic affiliates, mainly businessmen, who either took plea deals or were convicted of corruption-related crimes relative to the probe.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio- New elected Cleveland councilmen Joe Jones and Basheer Jones survived recounts by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections, election officials announced this week.

 

Joe Jones defeated Ward 1 Councilman Terrell Pruitt and Activist Basheer Jones won over Ward 7 Councilman TJ Dow via the November runoff election for their seats among all 17 Cleveland City Council seats up for grabs, and  three-term  Black Mayor Frank Jackson retained his seat, defeating outgoing councilman Zack Reed.

 

All of the aforementioned are Black Democrats.

 

A former assistant county prosecutor, Dow lost by 13 votes and Pruitt, by eight votes, the recount revealing no changes in the outcome in either race.

 

Four other close races, including the loss of Ward 14 Councilman Brian Cummin's seat to Jasmin Santanta, await recounts.

 

Joe Jones, the husband of Cuyahoga County Domestic Relations Court Judge Tonya Jones, told

Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com in a recent interview that God helped him win and that "the Ward 1 community wanted change."

 

Dow was up against 11th Congressional District Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, who endorsed his opponent, Basheer Jones, and he could not overcome the influence of the powerful Cleveland Clinic that had become annoyed with him.

CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM-CLEVELAND, Ohio- A Lorain councilman and former west side Cleveland activist who rallied for Ariel Castro-Seymour victims Gina  DeJesus, Amanda Berry and Michelle Knight and was a member of the community grassroots group the Guardian Angel was arrested over the weekend (Editor's note: DeJesus, Berry and Knight were held for a decade and raped by the late Ariel Castro at his home on Seymour Avenue on Cleveland's west side before getting free in 2013. Castro, a former Cleveland schools bus driver, hanged himself in prison while serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole).


Lorain Ward 6 Councilman Angel Arroyo Jr., 34 and a Hispanic-American elected to serve for the 2016-2017 term, was arrested Saturday morning about 1:00 a.m. at Jenee Drive near Jaeger Road in Lorain following a run-in with police. (Editor's note: Arroyo traveled to Puerto Rico in October and two times thereafter relative to the devastation there behind Hurricane Maria and told reporters then that "it's really terrible out there''. He was recognized  by the city of Cleveland and Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams in November 2014 as a member of the Guardian Angels for the groups community service and keeping down violence in the city through community patrols).


The councilman is charged with misdemeanors of resisting arrest, obstructing official business, disorderly conduct persisting, disorderly conduct by intoxication, and disturbing the peace.


Arroyo told Clevelandurbannews.com and Kathywraycolemanonlinenewsblog.com Sunday morning that "I appreciate the support and will comment publicly to the community on this issue when this case is done."


Lorain is a city some 30 miles west of Cleveland that has a population of 64,000 people, and is 18 percent Black and 25 percent Hispanic.


It has a household median income of $34,000.


Cleveland activist Kathy Wray Coleman, who leads the Imperial Women Coalition and has led anniversary rallies as to the Seymour Avenue victims where Arroyo was in attendance, said that community activists support Arryo.


"We support Councilman Arroyo and wish him the best," said Coleman. "It is not easy being a community activist and activists'-turned elected officials often encounter resistance from the establishment unlike other elected officials."


The incident reveals that Arroyo partied a little too much over the weekend.


Arroyo celebrated his birthday Friday night with friends at Disco's Bistro and fell out with a friend who did not want him to drive intoxicated, the friend telling police that he took his car keys and Arroyo, in turn, allegedly jumped on the hood of the car and then fell off.


The friend, who lived down the street, later handed the car keys to Arroyo's wife, the police report says, and he told police when they arrived that he did not want Arryo on his property.


Arroyo told police that his leg was hurt in the incident, police saying they saw no such evidence of his claim.


"I went to the hospital after jail and the doctor says I have a fractured knee cap," said Arroyo, who said he went over to his friends home after the incident with the car because he was allegedly hurt.


Police say he allegedly pulled his hands back when arrested, a typical and often erroneous allegation they use to maliciously charge community activists and some others with resisting arrest.
