First Amendment Foundation attempts to stop state obfuscation of public records. LIES!


For the moment, we're just going to put this out there. Today, the First Amendment Foundation filed an emergency motion to stop the Gov. Rick Scott cadre from deleting or hiding public records. Frankly, we shouldn't even have to be having this conversation anymore, but the availability of mobile devices for crack politicians apparently warrants redress. We will be digging into this story more in the coming days, but for now, just look at what we are likely facing. "I am not a crook?" Yes, you are.
