FOIA request filed for Andrew McLaughlin's email

Remember Andrew McLaughlin, Deputy CTO of the White House? The one with lots of Google contacts exposed by the Google Buzz security hole?

A group called Consumer Watchdog is filing a FOIA request for his emails, both GMail-based and WhiteHouse.gov-based. This is beautiful. Either we get to watch White House officials backtrack on transparency as fast as their legs will carry them, or we get to see just what Google and Obama Democrats have been discussing.

I’m rooting for the former. It will be delicious to watch Obama and the Democrats adopt Dick Cheney’s position on private meetings with industry.
