WASHINGTON (AP) - A federal grand jury has subpoenaed U.S. House records connected to a one-time aide to former Majority Leader Tom DeLay of Texas.

DeLay quit Congress last year.

The Associated Press reports the subpoena for ex-aide 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, but it didn't mention Buckham's name.

A House official told AP 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.

An attorney for Buckham didn't immediately comment.

Buckham left DeLay's office in 1998 and started his own lobbying business, Alexander Strategy Group, where DeLay's wife once worked.

Buckham's firm received referrals from the office of now-disgraced and imprisoned lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
