Debi Henthorn wants to get to the bottom of the mess -- literally. So she made a public records request and was met by a brick wall.
Folks, keep in mind that Lisa Iannotta is paid by the the public. But it appears that she is working for the machine.
Ask yourself this question: What do Hanks and Thompson have to hide? Why does the sunshine scare them so?
According to Debi:
Dave Cannon called me Friday July 10, 2009 in regard to my June 18th, records request. I had a 2 o'clock appointment to view those 500+ records today and ended up in a room with Kyle Rohrer, Lisa Iannotta both attorneys and Dave Canon. I was not permitted to view them. I was told Todd Hanks and Tommy Thompson have no records. I asked about the phone calls address in Hanks and Comstocks ( 9 emails) I was told Tommy made and received those calls at home and there are no records. Ken O'Brien is the only one of the commissioner that maintains files and he's been left out of the loop. I asked O'Brien if he had seen Todd's and Gus's emails, he had Not seen any of them. Things in Delaware County Government are very strange and smells really
The response from the machine is below. Another example of your Delaware County tax dollars at work -- at work against you, that is.

Mr. Cannon has indicated that you are requesting emails be sent to you now that are
responsive to your records request. Per my last email to you, I am working off of your June 25 request since it is more specific and geared toward ST ege.
Please be advised that some of these I have hard copies of and will scan and send; the others, as I mentioned on the phone, number less than 10. I will forward those to you this evening.
Those are the only ones I have at this time. I received two large files late yesterday, approximately 500 pages, that are still undergoing a review, including a legal review, to determine if they are responsive to your request and can be released. As soon as that review is complete, I will let you know.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact me.
