Recently uncovered FBI files on former Boston Mayor Kevin White show his administration was the target of a federal corruption probe in the 1970s, the Boston Globe reports [2].

Among the claims, which never led to charges, were that White pressured businesses to donate money in exchange for work in the city.

The documents largely detail alleged payoff schemes, the Globe reported.

A memo to the FBI director stated prosecutors didn’t believe evidence was “solid enough” to level charges.
