Texas watchdog Peyton Wolcott suggested in a May 30 open letter to Gov. Rick Perry:
In light of yesterday’s 16 indictments against three former Dallas ISD employees, and given that in many of our school districts the corruption unearthed in recent years originated with public records requests by parents and taxpayers, we the undersigned ask you to veto HB 2564.
But her pleas, according to Pegasus News, have fallen on deaf ears.
Mike Orren at Pegasus notes:
There is nothing that can convince me that this bill is anything but an attempt to prevent activists like Allen Gwinn, or say our community members covering Lancaster, from digging up potentially embarrassing information on elected officials.
