FBI agents have raided the home of Tampa City Council member Lynn Hurtak and seized property belonging to her husband, Tim Burke. Only Burke was named on the search warrant, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The couple told the Times that computers, a phone and other equipment belonging to Burke were seized, and that agents left the home a mess and damaged property.
Burke is a former journalist who now runs a media business, Burke Communications, whose website is currently down. The company is a full-service political consulting firm.
Burke previously worked for The Daily Beast, Gizmodo and Gawker.
