Suffolk DA seizes records, computers from Islip Town supervisor

Investigators from the Suffolk County District Attorneys office seized records and computers from Islip Town Supervisor Peter McGowans office Wednesday.

District Attorney Thomas Spota also subpoenaed all of the Republicans filings for his $1 million campaign fund. Records from the town payroll, public safety offices and the expansion of the Long Island MacArthur Airport have also been subpoenaed. In addition, some of McGowans records were seized from the Suffolk County Board of Elections.

In June, McGowan said all of the expenses were part of his political campaign and not illegal. A spokesperson from Spotas office says the subpoenas are all part of an ongoing investigation of government corruption.
