Big Issa is watching you
And I suppose he is just checking to see who is naughty and who is nice. Still the idea that Rep. Grand Theft Auto is checking up on people who just want to know what their government is doing is troublesome.
Representative Darrell Issa calls it a way to promote transparency: a request for the names of hundreds of thousands of ordinary citizens, business executives, journalists and others who have requested copies of federal government documents in recent years.OK, so Mr Issa only wants to make government work better and cows only fly when they make butter. This would be a good time for everyone to file an FOIA with the FBI for Rep. Issa's file. Just to make him work better, you know.
Mr. Issa, a California Republican and the new chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, says he wants to make sure agencies respond in a timely fashion to Freedom of Information Act requests and do not delay them out of political considerations.
