Edward Irving "Ed" Koch
Edward Irving "Ed" Koch (1924-2013) was a former congressman and mayor of New York City. This release consists of several files related to Koch. The bulk of the release consists of a 1977 investigation into extortion threats made against Koch that included the forgery of a letter using the then congressman’s letterhead and signature. There are parts of two other files also. The first concerns a 1973 extortion matter and the second a foreign counterintelligence matter that mentions Uruguayan military officials’ “irritation” with Koch; part of this file has been referred to another agency for release as it contains that agency’s information.
