Sarasota Woman Claims She Recorded Phone Conversations With Jared Fogle For FBI
A Sarasota, Florida woman has told WWSB-TV she is responsible for the FBI raid on former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle's home on Tuesday. The unidentified woman, who describes herself as a former journalist, says she contacted FBI agents after Fogle had conversations with her she found disturbing. She claims FBI agents asked her to wear a wire when she later talked to Fogle by telephone to confirm her account. She believes those recorded conversations led the FBI, state and local authorities in Indiana to raid Fogle's home earlier this week to search electronic equipment. She claims FBI agents found subject matter in Fogle's home similar to what he discussed with her during this week's raid. Fogle's attorney, Ron Elberger, called the woman's accusations an "unrealistic fabrication." I don't know whether it's a fabrication, but it's disturbing the inordinate amount of time our local federal law enforcement spends on these types of matters while the political insiders are allowed to steal hundreds of millions of our tax dollars with impunity.
