I say we all start sending one letter each to Hawaii demanding Obama’s real birth certificate. Just to piss them off.
That might make us feel better or like we’re getting something done, but it would take away time they could be using to answer legitimate requests.
One of these days, when I get fed up enough (lol), I’m going to post ALL of the go-rounds I’ve had with them so people can see the kinds of answers they’ve been giving.
There are about 5 exceptions to disclosure that UIPA lists, and they’ve tried one after the other of those exceptions on one of my requests. First they didn’t have it. Then they had it but they needed more time. Then they decided they didn’t need to disclose it to me because it was protected by statute. Then when I asked them what statute they said it didn’t have to be disclosed because of the “frustration of legitimate government function” exception in UIPA. Now I’ve asked them what legitimate government function would be frustrated if they disclosed the requested information. These communications occurred over the course of 5 months.
If Fukino said they spend 5 hours every week completing an average of 12 requests for Obama’s birth certificate, then somebody sure types slow. All they have to do is C&P the standard denial and click “Send”.
Government efficiency at work, obviously.
The funny thing is they don’t get that many requests for ANYTHING to do with Obama, rules, or procedures altogether in one week - as shown by the complete set of requests that they have received since last year.
