Attorney On Threats Made To Kasich: “They Won’t Tell Us Anything”
The Ohio Supreme Court has wrapped up arguments over whether threats made against Governor John Kasich are public record.
The case follows a 2012 public records request from Plunderbund, the liberal political blog that wanted incident reports for investigations into any threats against the governor.
â€œWe don’t know what theyâ€™re opening, we donâ€™t know what they’re doing,” argued Victoria Ullman, an attorney representing the blog.
“They wonâ€™t redact stuff,” Ullman added.Â ”They wonâ€™t give us anything,”
William Cole, who argued for the Ohio Department of Public Safety, says that denying the requests was lawful and appropriate.
â€œAll threat information is used by the department in protecting the safety and security of the office. Thatâ€™s all thatâ€™s required to trigger the security records statute,” Cole said.
Ed Fitzgerald,Â Governor Kasichâ€™s Democratic rival in the November election, is locked in a records dispute with the owner of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Fitzgerald has refused a request from the Northeast Ohio Media Group for records showing how often he used a county-issued key card.
