Clinton foundation eases muzzle on volunteers

Anonymous Patron writes NWAnews.comreports The Clinton presidential foundation this week relaxed confidentiality rules barring volunteers in Little Rock from speaking publicly about their work, after the foundation’s New York office discarded standards that threatened legal action against volunteers who spoke out of turn.”

The “relaxed” guidelines still seem pretty stiff for a quasi-public institution:

“The shorter form instructs volunteers not to disclose any information acquired while working unless it is publicly disclosed by the foundation. They must also get permission from the foundation’s communications office before granting media interviews. It makes no mention of penalties — except to state that unauthorized communication with the media is grounds for dismissal.”
