The Dallas Morning News’ Citizen Watchdog columnist reviewed the presidential candidates’ records on open government. Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton, Barack Obama and John McCain, and Gov. Mike Huckabee have voted on local, state or national levels to maintain compliance with FOIA and the release of records. While the candidates generally promote government transparency, and most have plans to post federal records, all have worked to keep more specific, personal records off of the public radar. (2/20/08)
