Transparency Advocates Span the Political Spectrum

To kick off Sunshine Week, the annual celebration of all things open government, we’d like to point you to a great story in The Washington Examiner about the struggles of filing a Freedom of Information Act request and how transparency advocates can be found across the political spectrum.

From the story:

In fact, transparency in government has become one of the very few major issues in Washington’s hyper-partisan atmosphere that commands support from across the political spectrum.

When The Washington Examiner asked three well-known advocates of increased transparency in government for Sunshine Week comments, their responses were remarkably similar despite their being from significantly different backgrounds and political frames of reference.

Read what those three advocates, including the Project On Government Oversight’s Danielle Brian, had to say in the full article.
