Michigan official files FOIA on private organization
June 18, 2008

I wrote a post back in March about an official for Billings Township, Michigan trying to file a FOIA on a private grassroots organization. It seemed a little hard to believe so I suggested taking it with a grain of salt. Now, someone from the grassroots organization (Concerned Citizens of Billings Township) has found that blog post and confirmed that the story is accurate.

“We did get a FOIA from an ex official/current assignee of the Township. She is running for Township Clerk again.”

Concerned Citizens of Billings Township.

No wonder they’re concerned.
