  •  T&Rd, but... (7+ / 0-)

    I know it says "limited request", but at the same time, couldn't this be setting a bad precedent? Couldn't it be applied to anyone? Or does the "limited" refer to "because Scott, et.al., are accused of doing government business" in those accounts? If so, then it's not a bad precedent because the request is "limited".

    Do I have that right?

    •  Using private email accounts for gummint (6+ / 0-)

      business is generally considered to make the gummint emails available for FOIA letters.

      For example in Maryland, no matter what account a gov official uses for public business, those emails are a public record.

      Apparently in Fla they decided to try to get away with doing business without using the stte's system.

      This has nothing to do with private citizens.

      Thump! Bang. Whack-boing. It's dub!

        it's just that seeing these very public portals and the way that was worded was sort of jarring at the time I read it.

        Made me wonder....

        (thanks!)
