CHICAGO (AP) - A longtime FBI agent with extensive experience investigating public corruption cases is taking over as head of the agency’s Chicago office.

A Department of Justice statement on Monday said Michael J. Anderson’s most recently headed the FBI’s office in New Orleans.

Anderson’s career experience includes supervising the investigation of Jack Abramoff. The Washington lobbyist was eventually convicted in a bribery and influence-peddling scandal.

Anderson replaces Robert J. Holley in Chicago. Holley recently announced he was retiring after 20 years with the FBI, which included top jobs in counterterrorism.

Anderson began with the FBI in 1995. He first worked in Miami. Among his earliest cases was one involving juror bribery.
