It's Official...Senator Secrecy IS....

SPJ's efforts to unmask Senator Secrecy -- the parliamentarian using darkness and subterfuge to wreck meaningful FOI reform supported by overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate -- has worked.

Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., is, officially, Senator Secrecy.

His unstated objections -- he will say only that Justice doesn't like FOI reform, so he doesn't like it. Ah, democracy: where a single senator derails legislation on transparency by behaving completely secretly.
