Judge Vaughn and New Hampshire continue to buck the national Right-to-Know trends, vis a vis Detroit's Kwame Kilpatrick.

DETROIT (AP) - A judge has ordered the release of approximately 1,400 text messages sent or received by the disgraced former mayor of Detroit and his ex-lover on their city pagers.

Wayne County Circuit Judge Timothy Kenny said Wednesday the messages between ex-Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and Christine Beatty are public records.

The messages were part of the criminal case against Beatty. She and Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to committing obstruction of justice to cover up their affair. They lied while testifying in a civil lawsuit in 2007.

The judge suggested the messages may shed light on government misconduct. [KingCast says, yah, like, former, ruined NH State Rep Martha McLeod's misconduct in trying to pass HB 1428 Bruce McKay Highway].

The messages are to be released Monday unless an appeals court intervenes.
Judge Timothy Vaughn intervened in KingCast v. Martha McLeod to make sure that none of her emails, private or public, were subject to lawsuit, despite the overwhelming trends and the case law shown right here (AG's from Florida, Missouri, Tennessee), not to mention Kidd v. Department of Justice. The matter will go to the New Hampshire Supreme Court and to Washington, DC this summer in a request for a real investigation of the Franconia shooting tragedy, as soon as Casey Sherman's book, "Bad Blood: Freedom and Death in the White Mountains" is released. Yup. Remember, ten years ago it took me four (4) years to get Justice for Michael Isreal; we're only going on two (3) for Liko Kenney.

PS: Ayotte says she wants to educate folks on Right-to-Know. How cute, considering she:
1. Is hiding the report on Unconstitutional DNA reporting.
2. Failed on ethics reporting.
3. Failed see to it that a 2006 Right-to-Know Commission RSA 91-A15 report issued.

These are not minor transgressions, folks, these are major gaffes. But Lynch put her right back in office, our tax dollars hard at work.
