    Arizona state senator Sylvia Allen has introduced a bill to repeal the state's open meeting law, affecting all levels of government and eliminating any requirement for notification that meetings will be held,

    Allen told the Arizona Capitol Times that her bill would lead to better governance if they could operate in secret.

    "There's better government if elected officials, the ones that are responsible and accountable, can have the freedom to be able to talk," she said.

    Next up, legislative voting records will become classified information, because, how could a legislator vote their conscience if some nasty reporter was always ratting them out?

    Democracy at its finest. Just trust us that it is working.

    How appropriate that she represents a town called Kooksville.

    It's part of the author's MO, she targets politicians that people nominate as "kooks" and gets the word out about them.

    She thought she has this senator Allen on the run in 2012, looks like that didn't happen.

    Our city council has public meetings but they also have executive sessions that are closed to the public.

    Apparently Florida has all these sunshine laws about open records of governmental communications, but even then the pols end up learning how to work around them. I remember reading that after Jeb Bush had been governor for awhile, his emails more or less read like “That thing we talked about didn't happen so let’s talk again later.”

    We need to become golf course caddies, those guys probably hear it all.
