A federal grand jury has subpoenaed House records connected to a one-time aide to former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay who has been caught up in the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling scandal.

The subpoena involving Ed Buckham was issued to the chief administrative officer of the House by a grand jury in Washington. Notice of the subpoena was read on the House floor Thursday in accordance with House rules, but it didn’t mention Buckham’s name.

A House official said that the subpoena sought payroll records and e-mails written by Buckham when he was DeLay’s chief of staff. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the issue with reporters.

Memories:

The freak show may never get quite that good again, but we can hope.
