Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan advised Gov. Rod Blagojevich that the state’s Freedom of Information Act requires him to release copies of federal grand jury subpoenas directed to his office. U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald has been investigating allegations of hiring fraud in state agencies. Blagojevich last November acknowledged receiving four grand jury subpoenas but has refused to confirm the issuance of additional demands for records. (11/3/06)
