Grand jury scheduled to meet in Ga. ethics case

ATLANTA (AP) — A federal
grand jury is scheduled to receive documents related to a state ethics
commission investigation into ethics complaints against Gov. Nathan
Deal.

At least four people received subpoenas last month asking
for records to be produced to the grand jury on Tuesday. Those included
two current and two former commission employees.

Deal's attorney
has said the inquiry doesn't involve the governor and likely includes
allegations agency documents in the case may have been altered or
destroyed.

The subpoenas show federal authorities want any
documents related to the commission's investigation of Deal's campaign
finances and disclosures during his 2010 run for governor, but reveal
nothing about the scope of the inquiry.

Deal was cleared of major charges in the ethics probe and agreed to pay $3,350 in administrative fees.
