Letter: Caught scrambling for an excuse

The claims by the Las Vegas mayor and city attorney that they did not have to turn over e-mails between the mayor and city councilors because they were communicated over a private account or a private nongovernment server is like saying that it’s not public record if the mayor and city councilors had a conference call over the mayor’s home phone or held a meeting at the mayor’s house.

  Nothing like “common sense” can effect the thinking of the political mind when scrambling for an excuse.

  Congratulations to the Optic for taking on the challenge of open government.
