Chicago, IL. (ECWd) -
We posted an article a few weeks ago (here) detailing how the City of Chicago had taken steps to hide, and lie about hiding, records related to potential debts owed to the city by Mayor Emanuel.
Now, another person has been attempting to get copies of document related to the mayor, and it is evident the City is still trying to hide those records from the public.
First, they extend the response time by 5 additional days claiming they need to consult with other departments within the city, and then when those additional 5 days have passed they claim there are no records responsive to the request for copies of payments of the mayor's utility bills and traffic fines. Amazing isn't it? Consulting with other departments on records that do not exist? Simply amazing...
"If there is nothing to hide, why hide it?"
