Why is the BOE holding out on documents?

Apparently the truth won't set you free:

Attorneys in a trio of lawsuits challenging North Carolina’s voter identification law say that as of the middle of last week, the State Board of Elections had not turned over a single electronic document, despite a plan agreed to by both sides earlier this month to produce that material.

In a motion filed last week, lawyers who object to the voting law say the other side is stalling. Defense attorneys contend that the plaintiffs are to blame for any delay by asking for copious amounts of documents, including some that pertain to a portion of the law that doesn’t take effect until 2016.

Not sure what is worse, failing to turn over documents or waiting until 5 p.m. on a Friday and then crashing your system, which is what DENR did last week.


Whom to believe?

The ones who say the other side is stalling or the ones who say the other side asked for a lot of emails?

Think for 2 seconds how long it would take you to produce emails if someone asked you for them. We will be overly generous and say any intelligent person could do so in a day.

So whom to believe?

Perhaps the IT department was sent on vacation until after the May primaries.
