WASHINGTON - White House visitor logs are public documents, a federal judge ruled Monday, rejecting a legal strategy that the Bush administration had
hoped would get around public records laws and let them keep their guests a secret.
The ruling is a blow to the Bush administration, which has fought the release of records showing visits by prominent religious conservatives.
Visitor records are created by the Secret Service, which is subject to the Freedom of Information Act. But the Bush administration has ordered the
data turned over to the White House, where they are treated as presidential records outside the scope of the public records law.
So, we get to find out about all those Oil CEOs and stuff going to the WHite house at 2am to make campaign contributions...*Wait Bush isn't running
for office, so why does he need those millions from Oil Companies for?*
