AG to State Archives: Open the Richardson Records

Attorney General Gary King's office is instructing the state records administrator to unseal the records of former Gov. Bill Richardson.

Apparently King's staff believes the argument that the sealing of records is allowed only for "personal" records, not documents produced during the course of being a public servant.

"Accordingly the state Records and Archives must, upon request, must allow inspection fo public records recently transferred to the state Records Center by former Gov. Richardson unless the records are subject to an exception under (the Inspection of Public Records Act) or another law."

I haven't heard back yet from the Richardson camp. I'll update when and if I do.
