A FOIA that shouldn’t have been filed

Eric Epstein of Rock the Capital in Pennsylvania has filed a FOIA request for the pension benefits paid to former state Rep. T.J. Rooney of Bethlehem.

Why should this FOIA not have been filed? Well, it should have been. But Mr. Epstein should not have had to file it…he should, in my view, simply be able to go to a website somewhere that posts the checkbook register online for whichever government pays the pension benefits and, voila, there it is.
