Feds Back Down From Legalizing Government Lies

Freedom of information act rescued by powerful republican
By Rik Myslewski

The US Department of Justice has dropped a controversial
proposed ruling that would have allowed them to say that records
don't exist when, in fact, they do =96 a response that in the
vernacular might simply be called lying.

"The Justice Department decided that misleading the American
people would be wrong, and made the right decision to pull the
proposed regulation," wrote Senator Chuck Grassley, a Republican
from Iowa, in a response to the DoJ's decision.

Grassley had a dog in this fight. On October 28, he sent a
letter to Attorney General Eric Holder in response to proposed
DoJ guidelines that would permit that department to respond to
citizens' Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests by claiming
that the materials being requested simply did not exist.
