Many Pennsylvania state workers are outraged after learning that a man from a Philadelphia suburb has requested information about the political action committee donations the government collects for unions from their paychecks.
Office of Open Records director Terry Mutchler said Wednesday that about 1,000 state employees have called and emailed since last Thursday, with most of them objecting to the effort by Simon Campbell to obtain their names and the amount and recipient of their donations.
Campbell, who has campaigned for years against teacher strikes, is appealing a denial of his request by Governor Tom Corbett's Office of Administration. The Corbett administration said disclosing the information would violate privacy and improperly reveal personal financial information.
The state last week emailed some 80,000 workers to inform them of the appeal and advise them to contact Mutchler's office if they want to be a party to the appeal. Campbell asked in March for 2012 donation information, as well as details of any payments by the unions to defray the cost to the state.
