I-Team: Providence financial documents subpoenaed in Fox investigation

PROVIDENCE -

The NBC 10 I-Team has learned through multiple sources that federal investigators visited Providence's Treasury Department after a subpoena for records was issued on Wednesday in connection with the Gordon Fox investigation.

The Treasury Department is where city checks are located; it's the center of the city's financials.

The I-Team also learned agents collected documents from the state's Board of Elections, specifically Fox's campaign finance records, on the same day the former House speaker's State House office and East Side home were raided last month.

Other than being a state representative, Fox is a lawyer. He served on the Providence Board of Licenses, and when he left, he represented before the board clients who often were looking for liquor licenses.

More than a month ago, investigators collected documents from the city's Economic Development Partnership, an agency that loans federal money to local businesses.

Fox helped close loans for the PEDP and was fined by the state's Ethics Commission for not disclosing more than $40,000 of income he had made.

So we're seeing where investigators are going to collect documents: campaign finance records, city loans, and now city financials. It's painting a clearer picture, but Fox has not been charged with any crimes.
