MRP: Despite Public Boast, McCaskill Still Refuses to Let Sun Shine In on Emails

December 10th, 2007 by mopns · No Comments

JEFFERSON CITY _ Despite her boast to the Kansas City Star that she would comply with a Missouri Republican Party open records request for her emails, Claire McCaskill continues to stonewall Missourians by not responding to or even acknowledging the MRP request made 27 days ago.

The Star reported on November 28 that “McCaskill said she was complying” with the November 13 MRP request, yet Missourians are still waiting for McCaskill to keep her promise and turn over her Senate emails and the last 60 days of state auditor emails. Missourians also remember that it was McCaskill who prompted the request after pontificating about the state’s open records law and then engaging in a political hissy fit attacking Gov. Matt Blunt, who beat her in the 2004 race for governor.

“Claire McCaskill is stonewalling Missourians by refusing to keep her promise to hand over emails in the spirit of the Sunshine Law she claims to hold dear and uses to launch cheap political attacks. Claire McCaskill publicly promised to turn over her emails, so where are they? Is she going to keep her promise?” said Paul Sloca, communications director for the Missouri Republican Party. “Claire McCaskill has stuck her nose in state politics by pontificating on the Sunshine Law and must now be held accountable under her professed reverence for openness.”
