Red Maryland Submits Public Information Act Request to Frosh
Red Maryland has submitted a Public Information Act request to the Office of Attorney General Brian Frosh for documents related to the Attorney General’s involvement in AGs United for Clean Energy.
As you may have heard, a group of several left-wing Attorneys General have decided to investigate companies and their involvement in environmental research. The Huffington Post describes it as “A coalition of state attorneys general ….will be working together to investigate corporations who may have misled the public about climate change. They quickly moved beyond companies and have now subpoenaed documents from think-tanks such as the Competitive Enterprise Institute for communicating with companies about environmental policy.
It should not be a surprise that Frosh would become involved with this group. After all, Frosh joined up with Attorneys General going after Volkswagen, but refused to launch a probe regarding the activities of Planned Parenthood.
Needless to say, we’re suspicious that Frosh’s probe is driven by politics and driven by rent-seeking groups that wish to see more and more of your tax dollars spent on technologies that enrich them and their partners.
To that extent, we’ve decided to launch our own inquiry into the Attorney General’s office to get to the bottom of this investigation. We’re hoping to discover any and all documents regarding Frosh’s communication with this group, these Attorneys General, and other groups regarding environmental law and climate change policy.
The bottom line is that if Attorney General Brian Frosh is colluding with other groups and other agencies to suppress free speech and to attack those who do not agree with the alleged “consensus” regarding global warming, the people of Maryland have a right to know about it.
We’ll keep you informed about the progress of this request, and appeals and what, if any, documentation we receive from it.
