This morning I contacted the Knox County Law Director and asked for the FOI (Freedom OF Information) request. I primarily wanted the list of email addresses.
I am insulted that Jack listed me as #7 and JB was ahead of me. Really!? Here are the people on the "McElroy List".
The detailed Email list was eradicated from this blog on 8/13/2012 at 11:30 am. A blog post posted on 8/13/2012 explains why it was eradicated.
Here is the verbiage by Tom Chester (the poor dude Jack delegated the dirty deed too)
SUBJECT: Public records request for emails
Dear Mr. Jarret:
The Knoxville News Sentinel is making a public records request for any emails to, from or otherwise distributed between Sept. 1, 2010, to present from the attached list of addresses.
The Tennessee Public Records Act, specifically T.C.A. 10-7-503(a)(1)(A), provides "public record or records" or "state record or records" means all documents, papers, letters, maps, books, photographs, microfilms, electronic data processing files and output, films, sound recordings or other material, regardless of physical form or characteristics, made or received pursuant to law or ordinance or in connection with the transaction of official business by any government agency.
The Knoxville News Sentinel, pursuant to the above provision of the Act, is requesting copies of these emails contained in any file, electronic data compilation, whether on computer, in a storage medium or otherwise, or other system or records, file, records retention storage facility, system or otherwise, whether written or electronic, in any form whatsoever related to this request.
The Knoxville News Sentinel is willing to pay a reasonable cost for the material -- preferably copied on CD -- and ask that it be notified in advance if the cost will exceed $200.
Please email the response to me at email@example.com or contact me at 865-342-6344 when the information is available.
I would like to thank my friends Ed Brantley, Bob Thomas, Mike Howard and the Newstalk WNOX 100.3 FM station for having me on this morning discussing the list.
