Two Charlotte, NC, officials split sharply on whether e-mails should be public record with City Attorney Mac McCarley saying public requests for copies from bloggers, unsuccessful bidders and political opponents had become so burdensome that many officials had stopped sending sensitive e-messages. However Mayor Pat McCrory, a candidate for governor, said he had no problems making e-mails public and favored automatically archiving all state employee e-mail. (5/12/08)
