Normal and ISU get along so well because both believe in ruling instead of governing. Neither thinks you have the right to know what they are up to.
I asked ISU for emails just in the last 8 months concerning the leased space for ISU Galleries and the Town of Normal. If you forgot, Normal voted 4-3 to renew the free 5 year lease.
My FOIA was denied because:
That amounts to almost 10 emails a day for 8 months. They knew I was looking for information just on the lease. They also know filing with the Attorney General is useless.
Welcome to tyranny folks. That is where your opinion is immaterial because enforcing the law is no threat to those who violate it.
