New subpoena seeks Sires records

The Associated Press is reporting that federal prosecutors have served a subpoena in the City of West New York for records relating to Rep. Albio Sires, who served as Mayor and Assembly Speaker before his election to Congress last year.

"The town has provided documents to the U.S. Attorney's Office and anything else the U.S. Attorney's Office wants it will get," City Attorney Daniel Horgan told the AP. Horgan says the documents requested were related to the federal probe of legislators who received a personal financial benefit from state budget items.

Last month, subpoenas were served on State Senators Joseph Coniglio and Nicholas Scutari, and Assemblyman Brian Stack. Sires is supporting Stack in a hotly contested State Senate primary this June. New subpoena seeks Sires records
