Judge Says Perdue Records Order Complies With Laws

A North Carolina judge says the public records policy adopted by Gov. Beverly Perdue complies with transparency laws.

However, Wake County Superior Court Judge Howard Manning did not rule Monday on complaints filed by media organizations that the
administration of former Gov. Mike Easley violated the state's records laws.

The lawsuit was filed after a former administration spokeswoman
described a policy of deleting e-mails sent to and from the
governor's office.

Perdue ordered last month that most e-mails sent or received by executive-branch employees should be preserved to comply with
public records laws. Easley issued a similar order on his final day
in office in January.

    OK, Lavon, where are you in reading Obamas book right now? Have you got to the "I am a communist and who I will surround myself with?" I am sure if you can write, you can read, oopps, CCC has been requesting that you cite one promise he has kept and you must not understood the question yet. Lavon, still need to know how much "change" you have, I need to buy a coffee in the morning. I used to have freedom and now I have change.

    CCC, I'm not trying to be nasty but let me ask a question. Without attempting to tie qualifications to a person, what would you say are the qualifications for being president? There was a lot of discussion about whether Sarah Palin was qualified, whether or not Barack Obama was qualified. But what are the qualifications for president?
  • by CCC Location: Greenville on Aug 4, 2009 at 11:35 AM
    Its not a matter of being against of for. Its a matter of whether obuma (thanks Tad) is qualified or not; and guess what; he's proving everyday that he is not. They are giving him just enough rope to hang himself.(not intended to be a racial comment) Do you actually think he chose biden on his own? Biden was put there for a special reason, and it was not to be vice president.

    And that majority of Americans that voted for him (popular vote was only 4% more than McCain, look it up yourself)have now realized the terrible mistake they made (reflected by polls, not just Fox polls), so your obama won't be coming back after 2012. Enjoy it while you can, it will be short lived.

    Not a good attempt lib; want to give us a REAL qualification instead of your rhetoric. "Your taxes will not increase by 1 dime." How many campaign promises has he broken so far. Why has he not apologized for showing his racist side to America? Why does he want to decrease spending on missle defense when rouge countries are spending more on missle tech.? Why does he want to create a civilian military as strong as the regular military(his own words)? When everyone has purchased a car from clunkers program and all 08 & 09 vehicles are sold, who do you think is going to buy the 2010 models when they come out? Very few because people that had planned to buy next year are buying this year. Its called common sense. And back to your campaign promises; give me a coupple of the MANY promises he made that have become so. NO RHETORIC like you just gave. Hard core facts only. He is a JOKE and will be the last black president we will see for a long time.

    CCC- It doesn't matter what reason I give you because no matter what reason I give you your going to be against it anyway so whats the point. At this point you need to get over the fact that Obama's your President and start showing him some respect. It sucks losing doesn't it CCC
  • by Lib Location: Greenville on Aug 4, 2009 at 07:08 AM
    CCC, your message hadn't yet posted when I sent mine at 8:03. You asked for one legitimate reason why Obama is qualified to be President. Here it is: the United States government is "of the people, by the people, and for the people." (US Constitution). Obama promised the people change and they elected him. He is now delivering on that promise. The fact that the majority of the American people voted for him and that he is keeping his campaign promise is the most legitimate reason I can think of that he is qualified. The American people have "stamped" him qualified. That's all it takes.

    MrT. Sorry, you are wrong. Obama is a citizen and he will be reelected by an 8-2 margin in 2012. His 8 years will be followed by 8 years of either Hilary Clinton or Joe Biden as president. The Republicans and their failed policies will continue to fall. Richard Burr will be defeated by a Democrat in 2010 by a 7-3 (or greater) margin. Obama promised a basic change in the way government does business and he is delivering on his campaign promise. This is almost unheard-of since 1994 and is, no doubt, a great surprise to Republicans. In the midst of all this, ratings (or lack thereof) will claim Sean Hannity, Glen Beck, and Rush Limbaugh. Since Sarah Palin showed her true colors as a quitter, her star is already fading. Good riddance.

    Denise, the truth hurts does it not? Yea, sometimes the names you mentioned get carried away but they in general speak the truth. Lavon, still waiting for JUST ONE legitimate reason why obama is qualified to be president. I gave you facts ealier why he is not qualified and for some reason you brought Bush into it(?). Seems WITN is protecting you again for some reason as an ealier post(which followed witn's terms) did not make it. Put facts where your mouth is and give us ONE reason.
