New Currie Documents Filed
Newly filed court documents shed more light on the focus of a federal investigation into Maryland state Sen. Ulysses Currie, pointing to his dealings with a grocery store chain, the Post's Rosalind S. Helderman reports.
Federal agents last week searched Currie's home and the Lanham headquarters of Shoppers Food and Pharmacy, where a spokeswoman said Currie has been a consultant. The Prince George's Democrat did not disclose that relationship in his financial disclosure statements.
In documents filed yesterday, prosecutors said the agents had seized bank statements, tax records and correspondence between Currie and the grocery chain. They also found marijuana and "drug packaging materials" in one room of the home, where Currie lives with his wife and teenage son. Prosecutors also have issued a subpoena for nearly every document kept by Currie and his staff.
An e-mail released yesterday by the State Highway Administration revealed the agency's administrator urging employees to "do all that we can to expedite" a traffic light at the grocery store in Laurel, citing that it was "very important" to Currie, who heads the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee.
