I was holding back on this information in order to use it in relation to my PRRs, however this SR story somewhat forces me to write about it today.
Let me start by advising you that the emails I am providing below were readily available to the reporter who wrote the above story. I obtained the emails as a result of my PRR and it is a copy of the same disc that was provided to Nick Deshairs of the Spokesman Review, so unless reporters don’t share information one has to wonder why the SR isn’t using the information they have available to them.
The emails demonstrate that a meeting took place on 6/25/2015 between several individuals within the City regarding Public Records Requests, as you can see a plan was afoot to move SPD Records personell to City hall to deal with records requests and there is discussion about where to house them and costs. What any investigative reporter would notice immediately is that the original July 1st,2015 email by Terri Pfister was not provided in the released public records documents and contains attachments regarding what took place at the 6/25/2015 meeting regarding PRRs. Pfister’s email is however copied in the other emails.
So exactly what do the attachments contain and what were the City’s plans? Keep in mind that this meeting took place prior to the Cotton/Straub case being made public.
One of the many compeling reasons I, and other media (yes other media) are questioning the Spokesman Review’s coverage of the Condon Administration is their reasoning behind not reporting on the text messages I obtained, via my PRR and offered to them, between Angie Napolitano and Monique Cotton that gives a good picture of what was going on.
Beyond the SR’s not using quality truthful information, the Napolitano/Cotton text messages were the result of Napolitano searching her private phone and providing the public records contained on her phone to Terri Pfister. I wonder why it has taken so long for others to do the same.
IS THERE ANY OUESTION WHY THE SPOKESMAN REVIEW WILL NOT LET ME COMMENT IN THEIR PUBLIC COMMENTS SECTION?
THEY CONTINUE TO DELETE COMMENTS THAT REFERENCE ME IN ANY WAY MADE BY ANY POSTER. I MUST BE ONE HELL OF AN EMBARRASMENT FOR THEM!
I REPORT THE TRUTH, YOU DECIDE!
