Democrat-Gazette Sues Governor, Parole Board

MAY 23, 2006 - Posted at 8:03 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee and the state parole board are targeted in a Freedom of Information suit by a newspaper that says they should have released the results in an investigation into a board member.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and reporter Charlie Frago said Huckabee and the Post-Prison Transfer Board violated the state Freedom of Information Act.

Board member Larry Zeno resigned, but the state has not released further information.  The Democrat-Gazette asked for a copy of the investigation results and a copy of Zeno's letter.

Huckabee's chief lawyer, Milton Fine, told the newspaper that the documents were exempt under the "working papers" exemption of the FOI law.

Huckabee spokeswoman Alice Stewart said the governor had not seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.
