Federal Subpoenas Issued Related to Former State Sen. Puckett
Federal prosecutors have issued subpoenas for records from the Virginia tobacco commission related to former state Sen. Phil Puckett's resignation, which the FBI is investigating. The tobacco commission has been served with at least two subpoenas - one ordering the commission's interim director to appear before a grand jury Tuesday. The second requests various commission documents involving Puckett. A Democrat from Lebanon, Puckett shocked Virginia politics earlier this month by abruptly resigning, which flipped control of the state Senate to Republicans. Puckett was in line for a potential high-level job at the GOP-controlled tobacco commission at the time of his resignation, but later withdrew his name for consideration. He's denied any wrongdoing.
