Are you bored? Would you like to have some fun with a public records request? I thought you might. To play this game, the first thing you need to know is that the public records law in Pennsylvania is flawed. It allows schools like Penn State that hoover up tax dollars to avoid public scrutiny. That's bad for a lot of reasons made obvious by the Jerry Sandusky scandal. The second thing to know about the public records law in Pennsylvania is that the people who process the requests usually don't want to process them. And sometimes they stonewall you for no good reason other than that they suck bird. I offer you the example of the Clinton County DA's office in Lock Haven, Pa.
