The Kansas City Star reports:
Sen. Josh Hawley capped a tumultuous week Friday with his debut appearance at the American Conservative Union’s CPAC conference— and receiving a subpoena as he left the stage.
Elad Gross, a Democratic candidate for attorney general who is suing Missouri Gov. Mike Parson’s office, said on Twitter that the Missouri senator was served moments after he completed his appearance.
“We got him,” Gross said. “After more than two weeks of evading service, Senator Josh Hawley was personally served with the subpoena at CPAC.”
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports:
The subpoena stems from an open-records legal dispute. Gross is seeking documents from the governor’s office about previous Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens, but the state reportedly won’t turn over the materials until Gross signs a $3,600 check.
Gross filed a complaint with then-AG Hawley’s office, which sided with the state. Now, Gross wants Hawley to provide “any and all communications, recordings, calendars, notes, and/or other documents involving you, campaign donors, state employees, consultants, and/or others” regarding his request.
