Attorney General Hood says Barbour employees refused to turn over public records concerning pardons; Gov. Bryant ordered them to comply

Wow. Things are getting more and more strange regarding Pardongate. In his press conference today, Attorney General Jim Hood (D) said employees of former Governor Haley Barbour (R) had stonewalled him all day in his efforts to obtain the documents relating to the pardons involved in Pardongate. Those individuals, as of today, are private citizens in possession of public documents.

After AG Hood informed Gov. Phil Bryant (R) of the refusal of these individuals to turn the documents over, Gov. Bryant ordered the documents released, and they complied.

Thanks, Haley.
