Even a half-competent university general counsel knows how to use Oregon’s anemic public records law to help his president hide public records from the public. Trust me on this.
The fact that PSU’s general counsel is not willing to do that for President Rahmat Shoureshi means Shoureshi’s days are numbered. Jeff Manning has the latest in the Oregonian, here.
State of the art IT backup, esp for public institutions should have all these emails, unless he used private account. I presume PSU has them, even if prez does not. he is correct on that. of course that was supposed to be true of IRS and state department.
