Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office has issued subpoenas to both Nassau and Suffolk counties to see where millions of taxpayer dollars slated for superstorm Sandy repairs were spent ["After Sandy: Subpoenas in Nassau," News, May 15]. District attorneys in both counties are investigating as well.

Does the attorney general's staff believe it will find something the district attorneys' offices can't? This to me seems like a waste of taxpayer money. Why duplicate an investigation?
