FOIA As a Political Tool
Friday, April 01, 2011
The Wisconsin GOP has filed an open records request for the e-mails of University of Wisconsin Professor William Cronon . Cronon and others say the GOP is trying to silence his criticism of the labor dispute in WI. The GOP says the request is perfectly legal and they need not explain what they intend to do with the e-mails. We wanted to ask a FOIA expert to weigh in. RCFP's Lucy Dalglish explains that the law is on the GOP's side.
