Great Idea! Issue a fake subpoena

This piece reports that a pissed of government official issued bogus subpoenas to find out who was sending e-mails critical of her job performance.

"Initially, Mercadante denied they were criminal subpoenas and characterized them as "investigative subpoenas."

But the subpoenas carried the header "People of the State of New York" and demanded that Time Warner disclose information "in a certain criminal matter." The subpoenas said the records were being sought for a "Colonie Police Department criminal investigation."
