What is the Census Bureau hiding?

Months ago, I filed several requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) for internal e-mails between Philly Census supervisor Fermando Armstrong and his mentor Stanley Moore, who, up until a few weeks ago ran the Census Bureau in the president’s hometown of Chicago.

Moore, who is an octogenarian, suddenly was reassigned. But after telling me there were 2,000 pages of communications between the two men, Census suddenly could only find a handful of chit-chat e-mails.
It returned my check for the 2,000 pages.

The Post’s attorneys have intervened on this and have heard nothing.

I also FOIA’d e-mails between four workers in the Philadelphia Census office for the months around the 2012 presidential election. Later, I added a supervisor’s name to the request. That supervisor has since taken early retirement.
