  •  Part of the reason they like to outsource -- (7+ / 0-)

    besides the looting opportunities for the rich and connected -- is the ability to deny FOIA requests or skirt open meetings laws.

    Remember that town in the Southwest that tried to deny citizens access to taped public meetings because they'd hired a private company to tape the meetings?

    It didn't work, but they had to be sued.
