New York's anti-corruption commission has reportedly issued its first subpoena.

According to the Associated Press, the Moreland Commission has sent a subpoena to the New York State Independence Party in order to look into its housekeeping accounts.

The commission's authority has been called into question after some state lawmakers refused to turn over information about their outside jobs and clients.

Governor Andrew Cuomo established it in order to weed out corruption in state government.

NY1 has reached out to the head of the Independence Party for a response and is waiting to hear back.
