Attorney: Feds subpoena information on Grimes’ campaigns

An attorney for the father of Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes says a federal grand jury has subpoenaed him and two of his businesses for records relating to his daughter’s political campaigns.
    
Grimes, a Democrat, was re-elected in November. She lost a race for U.S. Senate against Republican Mitch McConnell in 2014. Her father, Jerry Lundergan, has been heavily involved in her campaigns.
    
Attorney Guthrie True said the subpoenas were issued last week. Grimes’ attorneys, David Guarnieri and Jason Blandford, confirmed the U.S. Attorney’s Office has requested "certain documents" from Grimes’ campaigns.
    
U.S. Attorney spokesman Kyle Edelen said he could not confirm or deny the existence of an investigation.
    
Grimes’ attorneys said she was not the target of an inquiry. Lundergan’s attorney said prosecutors indicated he wasn’t either.
