Virginia's contempt for your right to information, for transparency and for good governance is without dispute.
The commonwealth has about 175 exemptions to the Freedom of Information Act, riddling it with so many loopholes that the law is feckless. The Center for Public Integrity, in a state report card, gives Virginia an “F” and ranks it 38th on access to public information.
