Madigan looks at stonewalling
Thursday, Jul 27, 2006
I had a story about this subject in Wednesday’s Capitol Fax.
Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan’s office said Wednesday it is reviewing the policy of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s administration not to make subpoenas public that it receives from law-enforcement agencies or provide information about them.
The governor’s office finally has an answer in today’s papers.
Blagojevich spokeswoman Abby Ottenhoff defended the governor’s policy Wednesday, saying it is based on a legal opinion about the nature of subpoenas.
