Feds Eye Ex Lawmaker For Child Porn

Posted:

State Capitol - Federal agents were searching for child pornography when they seized computers from former state Rep. Keith Farnham's home and offices this month.

A search warrant released by the Illinois House Saturday seeks documents "concerning minors visually depicted while engaged in sexually explicit conduct" from computers in Farnham's Elgin home and office as well as his Springfield office.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents made the searches March 13, and an official said they took the computer the Democrat used on the House floor on Thursday.

Farnham did not return messages left on his home and cell phones Saturday. Randall Samborn, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office in Chicago, said no charges have been filed in the ongoing investigation but would not comment further.

Farnham resigned Wednesday but cited health reasons.
