Ron Ramsey, The Goose, The Gander, etc.

Posted By on Wed, May 7, 2014 at 5:30 AM

Andrea Zelinski has the story over at Post Politics of how Ron Ramsey's staff just happened to create in their off-time a slide show evidencing all the ways our Supreme Court is problematic.

Here's my favorite part. In the slides, there's this complaint on Slide 30:

A staff member of the Lt. Governor attempted to attend the meeting and was asked to leave, despite the Commission continuing to conduct business.

Sunshine laws should apply to judicial commissions so they do not decide who Tennessee's judges are in private.

And then Zelinski says this:

Although Williams asked for the presentation via an open-records request, the office disagreed that the presentation was a public record and denied the request but separately gave Williams the document anyway, he said.

See, it's totally wrong for the judicial commission to keep things private when trying to determine judicial elections but it's cool if the Lt. Governor wants to keep things private when he's trying to determine judicial elections. Ha ha ha. It's no wonder they gave Williams the documents. How could they face themselves in the mirror otherwise?
