Josh Israel filed this request with the Gadsden, AL Police Department of Gadsden, AL.


From: Josh Israel

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Emails sent or received by sworn employees of the Gadsden, Alabama, police department from Nov. 9, 2017, to the date your office processes this request that include the word “Moore” in their subject line, body, or attachments.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes. I am a reporter with ThinkProgress, an online publication covering politics and policy in Washington, DC.

Please provide expedited processing of this request which concerns a matter of urgency. As a journalist, I am primarily engaged in disseminating information. The public has an urgent need for this information because it could reveal unlawful or unbecoming behavior of a candidate of a statewide elected position.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
