The Associated Press takes a comprehensive look at former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s record on openness and finds some cause for concern. The story notes that unlike his predecessors, "under an unprecedented agreement that didn’t become public until after he left office, Giuliani secreted out of City Hall the written, photographic and electronic record of his eight years in office — more than 2,000 boxes."

This stands in contrast to comments the presidential hopeful made last week during a GOP debate in Iowa where he asserted: "My government in New York City was so transparent that they knew every single thing I did almost every time I did it."
