A Louisiana newspaper has blasted State Commissioner John White for refusing to release public documents about the selection of private schools to receive vouchers. People want to know the criteria and process for selection. White will not make these documents public, claiming they are not public documents.

Now, in a time of budget cuts, he has hired a public relations person who previously worked for Jeb Bush, to help him communicate. The cost? $12,000 a month!

If he just released the documents and told the truth, he wouldn’t need a PR team to spin his story.
