Prosecutors in the San Diego U.S. Attorney’s Office have stepped up their probe into congressional earmarking with subpoenas to three House committees, the Los Angeles Times reported today.
The Times says:
The demand ratchets up an investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego into contracts awarded by the Defense Department and other agencies. The probe stems from the bribery case against Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham (R-Rancho Santa Fe), who pleaded guilty and resigned in 2005.
The scope of the investigation is unclear, although the request for documents is considered unusually broad.
