Attorney: Secretary of State Office not complying with FOI Act
Politics

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A Little Rock attorney filed a formal complaint against the Secretary of State's office.

Matthew Campbell claims Mark Martin's office is not complying with the Freedom of Information Act. Campbell said while looking into money, Martin's office reportedly spent to hire outside attorneys, and Campbell requested copies of several emails.

Campbell said some of the attachments were missing and other messages given to him were printed copies and not sent in the original electronic form.

"The documents in this specific instance pertain to two wrongful terminations, discrimination cases and they've hired a law firm to defend the Secretary of State's Office in those cases. As to why they've spent over $100,000 on other attorneys, I haven't looked into yet," added Campbell.

THV 11 contacted the Secretary of State's Office for their response but was told they have not seen the complaint yet.
