ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) _ New York's anti-corruption commission created by Gov. Andrew Cuomo is demanding information from Republicans but apparently hasn't asked for anything from Cuomo or other statewide Democrats in a flurry of subpoenas aimed at political organizations.
An official familiar with the case told The Associated Press that the Moreland Commission to Investigate Public Corruption issued subpoenas to the state Senate Republican Campaign Committee and the state Independence Party. The subpoenas seek information on housekeeping accounts, which have few limitations on donations they accept or how they spend the cash.
The official wasn't authorized to comment on the action and spoke on the condition of anonymity.
A state Republican Committee spokesman declined to comment on what its subpoena asks.
Commission spokeswoman Michelle Duffy declined comment.
