SPRINGFIELD, IL. (ECWd) –
From WMAY: December 8, 2014–Bishop On Air from 9 to 11:30 on News Talk 970 WMAY
There’s a saying that sunshine is the best disinfectant and an independent nonprofit watchdog that was started by a couple of veterans in Illinois with that exact goal. IllinoisLeaks.com has a familiar theme–get the information to expose government wrongdoing an post it online for the world to see. We’ll talk with Kirk Allen and John Kraft about their organization: Some of their victories and some impediments to transparency. That’s coming up just after 9:30.
Edited to add link to PODCAST (click here) of the show.
It was a good half-hour discussion, but could have lasted several hours. We talked a little bit about the Citizen’s Arrest, Arcola Township, College of DuPage, and the new FOIA amendment that recently passed.
