Our recently elected Attorney General is in over his head.
He speaks from two sides of his mouth. From one side, he speaks of “transparency” in government. From the other, he holds the truth for ransom.
Our good friends over yonder at North Coast Oregon (NCO) have done a great job in uncovering what may lead to a few people breaking the law that he has sworn to uphold. NCO has done a public information request (PIR) for records for a public employee’s email and correspondence. What they were told by our Attorney General who claims to be the second coming of Open Government Transparency (OGT) is that’s gonna cost you at least $548.
I’m thinking to myself in an out loud manner – This is records extortion! Our records being held for ransom by Mr. Attorney General John Kroger.
So I ask you Mr. Kroger, when did OGT fly out the window? You sir are a sellout to people who stand for anti capitalism, anti fossil fuels, eco-terrorism, and a few other nefarious anti things that will come to me later I’m sure.
So if you are reading this and feel you can handle the truth, wander over to NCO and give what you can so these scrappy, hard working reporters can pay the ransom and get the documents! The link to sending a donation is at the bottom of the article. And if giving isn’t in your financial future, at least wander over to the Oregon AG office and give ’em a piece of your mind!!! After all, on the front page of the AG website, one of AG Kroger’s goals is to “Fight for Oregon’s Consumers, Workers, Investors, and Taxpayers”
