Blunt Keeps Emails Secret


Matt Blunt sure likes to attack the Missouri Nonpartisan Court Plan for its secrecy.

Well, Blunt sure doesn't want to reveal his secret emails. As you will recall, there is a hub-bub about Blunt's administration not giving up their emails. Blunt won't give up emails regarding his chief of staff working with anti-abortion groups. The Post-Dispatch asked him about emails and Blunt said, "Once requested (under the Sunshine Law), and if they exist, they're definitely a public record." Attorney General Jay Nixon's position is 180 degrees opposite: "This is public business, these are public records, this is what we do."

You might also recall the stir about Mr. Torres writing to Matt Blunt regarding the racist comments by Chief of Staff Ed Martin. I made a Sunshine request for the letter and any related emails or correspondence. So, according to Blunt, then those emails are a public record. I got a letter back from Scott Eckersley, Deputy General Counsel for Blunt. "Our office is working to locate and identify records retained by this office that may be responsive to your request."

I'll keep you posted.

At least one candadite for attorney general gets it - here's part of a press release from Jeff Harris

Harris vows to create Sunshine Law Enforcement Unit

COLUMBIA, Mo. –Missouri Attorney General candidate State Rep. Jeff Harris today pledged to establish a special Sunshine Law Enforcement Unit in the Attorney General’s Office. The Sunshine Law Enforcement Unit would aggressively pursue complaints of actions by state officials and local governments to close public meetings or withhold public records in violation of state law, and help citizens understand their rights under the Sunshine Law. The unit would be modeled after similar offices, including public access counsel offices, in other states.

When I logged into the hotel, I was surprised that I had 1000 habbo credits which is unbelievable. I logged back in 5 minutes later to discover that all my habbo gold has been stolen. It gives you a virtual environment where you can use your imagination to create your own small cartoony world with your own habbo coins and interact with different people. For decorations you actually pay real monry to buy habbo gold in the range of $0.20, it may sound ridiculous. To use Hotel navigator you need to install cheap habbo credits of macromedia hockave player. There are two types of rooms, public and guest room.
