Were Names Named In The Unredacted PRC Ethics Survey?

In a pre-coffee, pre-email check Twitter post this AM, I gave props to the Santa Fe New Mexican's "bombshell" on the results of the Public Regulation Commission's internal ethics survey. Turns out the PRC sent the survey results to reporters around the state last night. Anyway, the New Mex should still be commended for putting up a fight over the agency's ridiculous excuse for not releasing the full survey responses.

NMFOG executive director Sarah Welsh got it exactly right:
"Sure, some of the responses may be embarrassing and they may include wild accusations that are unfounded or deliberately false. But there is no exception in (the state's Inspection of Public Records Act) that allows agencies to withhold information on those grounds," she said. "The remedy for spurious information is true information, not censorship. Let the accusations come out so the public can engage in an informed dialogue about solutions."

Oh, it's sure to be embarrassing. Turns out what PRC employees are most worried about is cronyism.

Perhaps some names were named in the full responses.

With its email announcement, the PRC sent along a spreadsheet with the basic findings of its questionnaire. We've posted an image of that file after the cut, or right-click this link to download. Enjoy.
