This article reports that the federal investigators have subpoenaed documents from the plumbers' union following an internal inquiry that has led to the expulsion of former plumbers' President Martin J. Maddaloni and former General Secretary-Treasurer Thomas H. Patchell. Union investigators say fraudulent activities led to the loss of millions of dollars in union funds. A special independent panel of three retired union officers last month found Maddaloni and Patchell guilty of violating provisions in the union's constitution.
