Although former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover has long been accused of racism and illegal wiretaps, an online poll shows that respondents believe the new bureau’s headquarters should be named after him.

The poll by Federal Times found that more than 31% favored Hoover, while 27% didn’t want to name the building.

The third-place vote went to FBI Agent Edwin C. Shanahan, the first agent killed in the line of duty in 1925. Fictional FBI Agent Fox Mulder came in fourth with 15% of the vote.

The bureau’s headquarters was named after Hoover following his death in 1972.

The FBI is looking for a new headquarters, which may mean a new name for the building.
