Mike Frerichs And The Machine Cave: Taxpayers Win.

From an email newsletter this morning from the Tom Cross for Treasurer campaign and first posted on Rich Miller's Capitol Fax Site:
After three months of evasion, blocking and obfuscation, Senate President John Cullerton’s office has finally agreed to release public documents on Sen. Mike Frerichs, as legally required by the Freedom of Information Act. The change of course came one day after Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider gave Cullerton’s office a one-week deadline before filing an official Request for Review with the Attorney General’s office and possible legal action. 
Below are some recent clips on Frerichs’ #FOIAGATE:
  • The State Journal-Register: “...shouldn't be like pulling teeth just to get the Democrats to follow their own laws on transparency and good government.” (Tim Schneider, GOP Chair)
  • Decatur Talk 101: “ So at the end of the day, then…what makes me raise an eyebrow is, is he [Frerichs] guilty of some kind of political clouting?
  • Capitol Fax: One standard for Democrats, another for Republicans
