Adam Corey is the President of the government relations firm, Unconventional Strategies.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- A local lobbyist wrapped up in an FBI investigation has withdrawn from all lobbying at the state level.

Florida online records show that Adam Corey withdrew from all five principals that he represented on Monday. Those include American Clinical Solutions, Broward College Foundation, Inc., Coalition of Affordable Housing Providers, PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., and San Felasco Nurseries, Inc.

It is unclear why Corey took this action, or if it has anything to do with the recent investigation.

Although Corey has left his clients at the state level, both Leon County and the City of Tallahassee have confirmed that no action has been taken at the local level. Online records for both respective governments show that Corey is still actively lobbying for several principals at both levels.

At the city level, Corey's firm Unconventional Strategies serves Yellow Cab, Igniting Florida, Rogers, Gunter, Vaughn Insurance, Arbor Properties, Advanced Green Technologies and Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association.

At the county level, Unconventional Strategies serves Igniting Florida, LLC, Advanced Green Technologies, Rick Kearney, Rogers, Gunter, Vaughn Insurance and Arbor Properties.

WCTV has reached out to Corey via phone and email, but has not yet received a reply.

This comes two months after news broke that the City of Tallahassee and the Community Redevelopment Agency were served with federal grand jury subpoenas. The two documents demanded any communication between a short list of Tallahassee movers and shakers, and the CRA and the City. Corey was among those named on the subpoenas.
