The federal investigation into U.S. Rep. Chaka Fattah’s finances, eight years in the running now, just struck very close to home.
Greg Naylor, Fattah’s longtime political adviser and congressional staffer, admitted in federal court yesterday that he lied to investigators to conceal an illegal $1 million campaign loan received by someone identified as “Elected Official A” during the 2007 primary election for mayor.
Naylor, 66, also admitted that he conspired with that elected official to use campaign funds to pay down $22,663 in college debt for the official’s son.
Fattah’s son, Chaka “Chip” Fattah Jr., has his own legal woes.
