GEC shuts Klitzkie down for second time

Posted: Aug 07, 2018 4:42 PM Updated:

Former senator Bob Klitzkie shut down for a second time by the Guam Election Commission - with the GEC board denying his request to reopen proceedings for the investigation into the termination of Lt. Governor candidate David Cruz. Kliztkie had written GEC asking for copies of documents the board received from DOE Superintendent Jon Fernandez and Cruz by way of subpoena, however GEC's board said the documents - which detailed correspondence between Fernandez and Cruz - were not public documents.

GEC Executive Director Maria Pangelinan said, "All documents and any information the Guam Election Commission gets from investigations remain confidential.

Klitzkie's complaint was based on a press release from the Rodriguez/Cruz camp that said Cruz was "given an ultimatum" - quit DOE or quit the campaign. But correspondence obtained by the GEC board showed Cruz was aware his contract did not allow him to run for office while continuing to work at DOE.  Klitzkie had opined the "ultimatum" was a violation of election law, however the GEC board disagreed based on documents they reviewed.

After the GEC denied Klitzkie's first request to obtain these documents, the former Senator and judge wrote a letter saying the GEC violated the Open Government Law and making a second request for the docs - which the GEC last night denied.
