Visclosky's Offices Subpoenaed by Feds

May 29, 2009

Federal law enforcement officials have subpoenaed the congressional and campaign offices of Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-Ind.) to get information about a former defense lobby firm raided by the FBI, according to Visclosky.

Certain Visclosky employees have also been sent grand jury subpoenas requesting documents related to the PMA Group, a lobby shop with strong ties to the Indiana lawmaker. Visclosky’s former chief of staff, Rich Kaelin, was a high-profile lobbyist at the firm that closed its doors at the end of March.

“Federal law enforcement officials have issued grand jury subpoenas to my congressional office, campaign committees and certain employees to request documents relating to PMA,” Visclosky said in a statement.
