When an official gives an important press release, the public should have access to research that verifies the accuracy of the most important facts.

For example, when Rahm Emanuel introduced an ordinance expanding his power to punish protesters, and curtail use of public space, he stated that the measures were temporary, and that they were meant to deal with security at G8/NATO. Both of these statements he later retracted.

NBC Chicago wrote, "We should also be concerned about the deceitful way [Rahm] slipped the proposal -- which Occupy Chicago has dubbed the “Sit Down and Shut Up Ordinance” --into the public discourse.**" Indeed! The Task Force on Ethics Reform should be very concerned about deceptive press releases and misinformation! How is Rahm going to be held accountable for this?
