Court Issues Subpoena to Dem Rep. Meeks For Shady House Deal

Another day… Another democrat is subpoenaed to court on corruption charges.

A federal grand jury issued a subpoena to Democrat Gregory Meeks for a shady house deal. Rep Meeks (D-NY) is also being investigated for his involvement with a charity that raised money for Hurricane Katrina victims who never received a dime.
The Politico reported:

New York Rep. Gregory Meeks has been subpoenaed as part of a growing federal corruption probe that includes some of the most powerful Democratic politicians in Queens.

Meeks’s office received a document subpoena from a federal grand jury in Manhattan several weeks ago, the New York Democrat announced on the House floor Tuesday. Under House rules, a lawmaker must announce on the floor when he or she has been subpoenaed in a civil or criminal action.

Meeks’s aides declined to discuss what the grand jury was seeking, but the subpoena covered a period going back to 2000 and seeks a broad range of documents from the seven-term lawmaker.

“Our district office received a request for documents, with which we promptly complied. We followed House rules in formally disclosing the request,” said Sophia King, Meeks’s chief of staff. “But the congressman is committed to assisting this review, and we are otherwise respecting its confidentiality.”

Of course, if Meeks was a Republican this would have been headline news by now.
