In New Ethics Probe, Only Republicans Subpoenaed


New York’s anti-corruption commission has issued subpoenas demanding information from Republicans, but the panel established by Gov. Andrew Cuomo has not apparently made such demands of Cuomo’s fellow Democrats in a recent flurry of subpoenas aimed at political organizations.

The Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption issued subpoenas to the state Senate Republican Campaign Committee and the state Independence Party seeking information on housekeeping accounts, which have few limitations on donations they accept or how they spend the cash.

State Republican Committee spokesman David Laska confirmed his group also received a subpoena. The Assembly’s Democratic majority hasn’t received a subpoena, said spokesman Michael Whyland.
