TOP SECRET - Purdue Has ‘No Records’ on Daniels' Hiring
Aug 27, 2012 — Purdue’s public records officer formally turned down The Indianapolis Star’s request for all pertinent records, which we made under Indiana’s open-records law.
In its letter (see below), Purdue first said “no records were found” and that it has “no records to forward.” Apparently, the trustees and search committee exchanged absolutely no letters, emails, text messages, phone messages, calendars or reports with Daniels between June 1, 2011 and July 5, 2012. On any subject.
In the next sentence, the university said it was allowed to withhold “certain information contained in the files of public employees and applications for public employment.”
End of story? Stay tuned.
