From Roxana Tiron at The Hill:
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.
PMA is under investigation for allegedly steering lobbying dollars to candidates — notably to Reps. Visclosky, John Murtha (D-Pa.) and Jim Moran (D-Va.) — through “straw man” donors, some of whom claim they’ve never heard of PMA.
Adding intrigue to this saga, PMA’s founder is former House Appropriations Committee aide Paul Magliocchetti, who has close ties to Murtha, the chairman of the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee.
