Genius. That's the only word for it.
First some background: I am constantly writing government officials with "public records requests." The most common answer I get is "pay us $X.XX and we will gladly send you this information."
So now I have come up with a plan. A brilliant plan.
You see, I've invented the world's most popular running shoe! I plan to start a company... I think I'll call it "Nike." I'll make millions.
Then when I ask for public records and I am told "no" I can simply send my army of lawyers to make fools of these stubborn "public servants" and get the information that I'm after.
Either that or I'll stick with my current plan: email these people endlessly until I find those few and far between state workers who are sympathetic to my cause and give me what I'm after.
