Massachusetts Opens Long-Locked Romney Archives

Tuesday, 06 Dec 2011 02:11 PM

 

WASHINGTON — Massachusetts is making available hundreds of boxes of files from Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's term as governor that had been locked away.

The decision by state officials will provide access to more than 460 boxes of documents that were stored since 2006 in the Massachusetts archives in Boston but that were unavailable to the public.

Officials decided last week to open the records, said Commonwealth Secretary spokesman Brian McNiff. The files must be reviewed before they are made available, but Romney officials would not be consulted in that process, McNiff said .

Despite turning over 600 boxes of files in 2006, Romney has been criticized for authorizing aides to purge emails and other records. Romney campaign officials were not immediately available for comment.
