I’m just starting to go through it, and it’s an absolute mess. Every page is it’s own pdf file and not even scrollable or searchable. So it appears every page is its own file, making it that much more difficult to review. None of the files are titled, there’s no index.
Soares was under orders from the state to release testimony he received from former Gov. Eliot Spitzer and his aides, after Soares fought the documents’ release.
Updated: Soares aides said that there was no order to release the documents, just an advisory opinion from the state Commission on Open Government.
Soares conducted two investigations into whether Spitzer and aides conspired to release travel documents on former Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno’s use of state aircraft.
Soares found no criminal wrongdoing in either probe. Last month, the state Commission on Public Integrity charged four Spitzer aides with civil violations of the state’s Public Officers Law.
