In a federal grand jury subpoena dated Aug. 6 and issued to the Oakland city attorney’s office, federal authorities asked for “timesheets, leave slips for sick leave, vacation, executive management or any other type leaves and pay stubs” for Oakland’s top nonelected official and the five others from January 2004 to the present.
