PICTURED: THIEF of PUBLIC RIGHTS/Linda Ronstadt's former boyfriend/Jackass, California Governor of ENDLESS SPENDING=no matter what -- Jerry(atric) Brown:
California Governor Jerry Brown is turning the lights out on the security cameras, to pull the BIG HEISTS!!! Sacramento Democrats are shutting down PUBLIC RECORDS REQUESTS, which is the ONLY way for the PUBLIC to check government transparency. I'm not sure if you grasp the magnitude of this jack move. Basically, putting blindfolds on the public (and on accountability), as they are pulling shadier and shadier stuff; regarding YOUR money; and THEIR actions. He claims to save money. Yeah, BETTER START HERE! Like, PubRecordRequests are the problem. LMFAO! 2013 has REALLY PROVEN to be the END of AMERICA, as it was founded.

SACRAMENTO — Gov. Jerry Brown indicated that he would support protecting public access to government records in a constitutional amendment to be voted on next fall, but still supports temporarily weakening the law that ensures public access to official documents.
Brown’s comments, which came in a statement released Wednesday evening, capped a wild day at the state Capitol, which had lawmakers scrambling to cope with the fallout of last week’s vote to water down the law.
At Brown’s urging, both houses approved a measure making local compliance with part of the state’s public records laws optional.
(Let me guess...they will chose NOT to give your the records.)
The controversy has sparked a rift between Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles), who now supports removing the provision from the state budget approved last week, and Brown and Senate leader Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento), who have both indicated that they want a temporary change in the law to save the state millions of dollars.
[If Perez is AGAINST the provision (weakening PubRecRequests) -- and Governor Brown SUPPORTS it; this means Perez will be running for Governor, against Brown; and this is the first, "throw Jerry under the bus," PR move on Perez' part.)
If approved by Brown, the legislation would allow cities, counties and local government to “opt out” of some provisions of the law. It is expected to be signed by the governor this week.
By Wednesday afternoon, Pérez announced that the Assembly was changing course. “We were opposed to the change from the outset,” Pérez spokesman John Vigna said in explaining the reversal. “It was included as part of a larger budget deal, but seeing the reaction since, we understand Californians care deeply about access to public records.”
