HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The former mayor of Harrisburg is speaking out about state investigators searching his home earlier this week.

Stephen Reed said Wednesday he’s bound by a “gag order” but that didn’t stop him from confirming that he testified before a grand jury in April and from suggesting the investigation is the result of “dirty politics.”

The attorney general’s office hasn’t comment on Tuesday’s raid. Reed’s failed projects, including a planned Wild West museum, helped push the city deep into debt. Agents were seen taking a saddle and other Western artifacts from his home.

Reed says he’s suffering from cancer and promised to say more in the future, saying, “There’ll be comments … plenty of them in due time. Right now I’m governed by a gag order that prohibits me from doing so.”
