Former Council Speaker Peter Vallone Sr. was subpoenaed last week by U.S. Attorney Michael Garcia's office seeking documents related to the probe, according to Vallone's son, Queens Councilman Peter Vallone Jr.
Ex-City Council Speaker Peter Vallone Sr. hit with slush probe subpoena
Oddly, the subpoena sought information dating from Jan. 31, 2001, which postdates Vallone Sr.'s tenure as speaker. The councilman, who now holds his father's seat, said Vallone Sr. couldn't comply with the subpoena because he doesn't have any documents to provide.
If he's in need of legal counsel, Vallone Sr. won't have to look far.
"Our firm has attorneys associated with us who handle these types of matters," Vallone Jr. said, referring to Vallone & Vallone, where he, his father and his brother, Paul, are partners.
