FIRST ON FOX: A right-leaning federal watchdog organization said it is suing the Education and Homeland Security departments over documents pertaining to the National School Board Association (NSBA) letter comparing parents to “domestic terrorists.”
Protect the Public’s Trust (PPT) announced on Friday it had filed lawsuits against the Education Department and DHS over the controversial letter. PPT shared the announcement first with Fox News.
“This episode keeps getting, as the old saying goes, curiouser and curiouser,” PPT director Mike Chamberlain told Fox News in an email statement.
“With evidence that the Education Secretary may have been involved in soliciting the letter, it’s well past time for all the agencies involved to come clean and release all relevant records,” Chamberlain continued. “However, absent this litigation they don’t appear willing to do so.”
