MOGOP Calls on Rep. Page to Release Emails

July 16th, 2008 by mopns · No Comments

You had to know this was coming after Rep. Page’s action today. Release from the MOGOP: 

Today the Missouri Republican Party filed a Sunshine Law request with Lt. Governor candidate Sam Page. The request asks for emails sent by and to his official office.

“Representative Page has been grandstanding on the issue of the Sunshine Law and it’s time for him to demonstrate to Missourians where he really stands,” said Tina Hervey, communications director. “I suspect that Representative Page is in the same camp as many of his Democrat colleagues in that he talks about the Sunshine Law but doesn’t understand it and, like Jay Nixon, we suspect he and his staff are deleting e-mails.”

Several Democrat lawmakers and Jay Nixon have tried to politicize the issue of emails and the Sunshine Law while continuing to delete their own emails. Jay Nixon’s office told The Associated Press last year that his office destroys many of its emails and he has stonewalled lawful requests for records from his office

If Democrats are going to politicize the Sunshine Law, they ought to have the integrity to have their actions match their words. We call on Representative Page to not hide behind any interpretation regarding whether House members are subject to the Sunshine Law. This is a simple request that should be responded to quickly and accurately. Representative Page should also come clean with the press and the public about whether his office is destroying emails.
