Meeks subpoenaed in Katrina probe

From the NY Post:

A federal grand jury has slapped New York Rep. Gregory Meeks with a subpoena as part of what is shaping up to be a sweeping corruption probe of the Queens Democrat and other city lawmakers.

Meeks announced he had been subpoenaed Tuesday on the House floor, complying with rules that require members to publicly disclose when they are subpoenaed.

The Manhattan grand jury reportedly is seeking a slew of documents dating back to 2000.

Meeks received the subpoena about two weeks ago and disclosed it as soon as lawmakers returned this week from Congress’ spring break, said Meeks spokeswoman Lupe Todd. She would not provide more details of the grand jury probe.

His favorite charities are under scrutiny as well.
