Herenton Reveals Target Letter From The Obama Justice Department
Federal Grand Jury Still Investigating Former Mayor Herenton
About a week before Memphians went to the polls in the mayoral special election, former Mayor Willie Herenton got a letter from the U.S. Justice Department.
The so-called target letter officially acknowledges a months-long federal investigation into some of Herenton’s personal business deals while mayor, including his one-time ownership stake in the Downtown Greyhound bus station property.
And the letter tells the now-former city mayor he’s the target of a federal criminal probe surrounding the Greyhound property.
In response, Herenton sent a four-page letter to U.S. Atty. Gen. Eric Holder earlier this week.
