Ex-Rep. Weldon

The Justice Department has sent out wiretap letters, which may indicate that this probe is over. Ex-Rep Curt Weldon was never charged.

PHILADELPHIA — Federal investigators were running wiretaps for months at a time in 2006 on then-U.S. Rep. Curton Weldon’s chief of staff and other members of his inner circle, the Justice Department has revealed.

The wiretaps were disclosed in letters that the department recently sent to individuals – including this reporter, then employed at another newspaper – whose phone conversations with the targeted parties were intercepted.

The notifications, required under federal law, often are sent toward the end of an investigation or when the disclosure would no longer affect an ongoing investigation.

Legal observers say that the wiretap disclosure could be another indication that the corruption probe that helped end Weldon’s lengthy political career has concluded.

Weldon, a Delaware County Republican now working for Exton-based Defense Solutions, has not been charged.
