Deerfield Beach Housing Authority Just Throwing Away Public Records Now

It looks like Deerfield Beach has a twofold problem: The first fold is that the "office manager/comptroller" responding to emails for Housing Authority Chairman Keith Emery has no idea how to read a four-sentence request for simple public records.

The second is that they've been throwing those public records away.

MAOS blogger (and former DBHA commissioner) Chaz Stevens, doing his thang with the Sunshine Law requests, asked for the official emails of Emery and Commissioner Caryl Berner back in March. They're required to save them, because emails sent or received in an official capacity by public officials are public record.

Don't just take my word for it -- it's written on the DBHA website:
Under Florida law, e-mail addresses are public records. If you do not want your e-mail address released in response to a public records request, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
Not only do they understand the law; they understand how to get around it. However, Stevens posted late yesterday the chain of correspondence related to his request, which reveals that Emery, whom Stevens refers to in his official request as "Keith 'Blood Spurting From His Eyeball' Emery," doesn't care.

"We do not save DBHA emails for any length of time due to the influx of email our company receives," wrote Janis Wiley, from Emery's email address. "Mr. Emery deems it unnecessary to save meeting minutes, etc."

Ah, he's deemed it unnecessary. One can't help but wonder what the state attorney will deem when he receives the complaint Stevens filed about the whole mess. We will call the folks in question this morning to see what on Earth this could be about.

 Chaz, nobody trusts you.  You don't have any friends.  You don't influence anyone.  All you do is obsess about your self.  You are a yapping shit tzu.  How sad. BTW - The only way you are going to get your mouse sized crank blown is by paying for it.  The girls who work Dixie Highway have low enough self esteem to do you.

A perfect metric for your GOP kind. Don't go with right...  Go with what satisfies your emotional need..

Blow me... Maybe that accounts for the bad taste in your mouth. PS Do you really think I do what I do to make friends? Bah... I do it to influence people... And trust me, I influence people. So go on paying your taxes and living your sheeple life... On the sidelines. Nipping at my heels. I'll continue to put people behind bars. Continue to make it on press, TV, and radio. Continue to scare the living fuck out of the evildoers. *** When you have one corrupt official arrested and removed from office, then feel free to comment on my methods. Until then, did I mention you can blow me?
