The White House and the Secret Service quietly signed an agreement last spring in the midst of the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal declaring that records identifying visitors to the White House complex are not subject to public disclosure.
The audacity is stunning. The White House is the residence of our elected president, elected by the people, for the people and of the people, not of a Emperor, an Imperator, Sultan, Czar or any other autocrat. We have the right and even the responsibility to know who visits the White House.
