White House Visitor Log Secrecy Will Increase Corruption

Statement of Robert Weissman, President, Public Citizen

Note: Today, the White House announced that it will not voluntarily disclose logs of White House visitors.

The only reason to keep secret the White House visitor logs is to hide from the American public the corporate influence-peddlers who are seeking favors and gifts from the White House. More secrecy equals more cronyism, more insider dealing and more corruption.
