FOIAs lead to DGIF indictments

Three former Department of Game and Inland Fisheries officials were indicted September 12 for misuse of public funds. Nelson County residents Lee and Paulette Albright played a role in the case through their persistent Freedom of Information Act requests to understand why a popular fish hatchery near their Montebello home had been closed. Michael G. Caison, Terry C. Bradbery and William L. Woodfin Jr. are accused of using state credit cards for purchases on a private trip to Africa in 2004.

Hooray for the Albrights! and the FOIA power. Nicely ironic fit of "Albright" with Justice Holme's observation: "Sunshine is the best disinfectant."
