Wisconsin officials use open records law to turn tables on critic

From Wisconsin State Journal:

MADISON — High ranking state officials have turned the tables on a persistent critic by filing a series of open records requests under a law usually used by citizens to find out what government is doing.

Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs administrators won’t say exactly why they filed the formal requests with members of their official advisory council. But the unusual action follows a long dispute — including accusations of stalking, racism and harassment — between the agency and the critic, who is one of its former division chiefs.
