I just received a $115,000 bill for an open records request in Mercer County

I received a tip that the Mercer County Sheriff was using his private gmail address to circumvent open records request so I looked into it. First they claimed the emails don't exist and now they claim they found 100,000 email pages. For the past two months I have been battling the ND Attorney General and Mercer County Sheriff for their refusal to give me Mercer County Sheriff Dean Danzeisen's emails, which they are required to do by law. The NDAG refused to write an opinion on Mercer County Sheriff's violations of the ND open records statutes (basically admitting to me that they only protect the government and the public can piss off) of which they are required by law to do so. When I threatened civil action against Mercer County Sheriff this is what their response was, a bill for $115,000.

Well that sucks. Hope they let you set up some kind of monthly payment plan. You really should go out there and organize some protests, set up a camp somewhere, burn some cars, block off a highway, you know, to show them you're serious.
