(Reading) -- Federal agents are searching a second Pennsylvania city hall a week after questioning officials and hauling documents out of Allentown's government offices. 

The FBI confirmed today's search at Reading City Hall but declined to comment further. 

City Clerk Linda Kelleher says agents were seeking items related to political consultant Michael Fleck and one of his employees. 

Fleck was the campaign manager for Reading Mayor Vaughn Spencer and Allentown Mayor Ed Pawlowski's now-suspended Senate campaign. 

He recently closed his consulting firm and moved out of Allentown on Wednesday. 

A phone number listed on Fleck's website links to a fax machine.

He didn't immediately respond to a message sent through LinkedIn.
