White House Blocks Request for Records on Contact With Anti-Kerry Vets
Advertisements [?]

The White House is stonewalling a Freedom of Information Act request for records detailing Bush Administraton contacts with Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the GOP-backed anti-Kerry organization that is challenging the Democratic Presidential nominee's actions in Vietnam.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) filed the FOIA request on August 24 and received a letter from the Executive Office of the President Friday, denying the grounds that it is "exempt from having to disclose the information" under the law.

CREW had asked the White House to release information regarding contacts between the Executive Office of the President and members of SBVT and others associated with the group, including public relations, advertising, detective and fundraising organizations.

CREW filed the FOIA after learning that President Bush's political advisor Karl Rove had claimed not to have spoken with his longtime friend and primary SVBT donor Bob J. Perry, in over a year.
