Subpoenas related to Ga. gov's ethics complaints

By By CHRISTINA A. CASSIDY

ATLANTA (AP) — Two individuals familiar with the case say a federal grand jury has been scheduled to meet next month to receive documents related to ethics complaints involving Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.

Three people have received subpoenas that ask for the records to be produced to the grand jury Jan. 14. A person with direct knowledge of the case told The Associated Press the commission's executive secretary, Holly LaBerge, received a subpoena Wednesday.

The AP obtained a copy of the federal grand jury subpoena for staff attorney Elisabeth Murray-Obertein from a person familiar with the case. The two individuals spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to discuss the case publicly.

In addition, former commission staffer John Hair told the AP he, too, had received a federal grand jury subpoena.
