A conservative legal group claimed Monday that Vermont’s attorney general withholds public information requests from groups that appear friendly toward ExxonMobil.
Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan questions the motives of groups seeking access to public information, E&E Legal told The Daily Caller News Foundation in a press statement. The group said the AG’s office admitted recently to googling E&E’s name to determine its political bias.
“OAG admitted in open court that it ‘googled’ E&E and concluded that the appearance among commentators of keywords such as ‘coal’ and ‘Exxon’ suggested E&E might have views different than its own and such a group possessing further public records would not be in the best interests of the State of Vermont,” E&E said.
