When Independents Attack
(O&B television ad)
As misleading as that quote is, it is quite true that the “we don’t follow state laws” excuse has been used in SG for years to evade Sunshine and Freedom of Information Act requirements. Not for any malign reasons, but simply for lack of clarification on those issues. It’s kinda like how SG can rule that a constitutional amendment is unconstitutional – just some law students misreading things.
Still, there is definitely an “ouch” factor to that ad. I wonder if it might backfire.
