The following link provides evidence of the predilection toward misrepresentation and the manifestation of prejudice through manipulative language the following personnel have regarding constructing a false narrative that will produce the sum they desire. 

Iowa Public Information Board Erika Eckley 

Powesheik County, IA Attorney Bart Klaver  

Two upper-class Iowa licensed lawyers may feel capable of transforming reality by deploying persuasive language that constructs the narrative they want to disseminate. At the same time, promoting the false reality they desire others to believe. Ultimately, a liar never stacks as tall as the evidence they attempt to manipulate, disregard, or conceal. At the same time, the boldness of two Iowa licensed lawyers misrepresenting the timeline of electronic mail that evidence shows was sent to the entire Iowa Senate is simply overwhelming.    

The evidence shows Iowa Public Information Board Erika Eckley’s ethics include spreading a false allegation of criminal conduct against an Iowa public records requester throughout the Iowa Press while promoting legislation that will expand the authority of her government agency. Based on that evidence, can we trust the contents of her dismissals or any other work product produced when evidence shows the current Executive Director is an unethical employee of the State of Iowa? Iowa Public Information Board Erika Eckley’s dismissal of IPIB case 23FC:0123 is nothing more than a work of fiction. At the same time, she works to build prejudice against the facts toward the end of her dismissal that conflict with what is communicated in the introduction of her dismissal.    

I will not even waste my time communicating my outrage regarding this alleged public servant’s inclusion of my use of Bible scripture in my correspondence in the justification for her dismissal of my complaint against Poweshiek County, IA. At the same time, evidence shows the Iowa Public Information Board Executive Director refused to process a previous complaint against Poweshiek County, IA, included in the Iowa Civil Rights Commission complaint 10-23-80682. Historical evidence presented to the State of Iowa later this year will provide a reasonable conclusion that Executive Director Erika Eckley has consistently misrepresented facts and public records and produced evidence of discrimination against a protected class in the State of Iowa. At the same time, she was assisting government bodies with dismissals of complaints that had been filed against them.

Innocence Project, Iowa ACLU:

Suppose evidence shows Poweshiek County, IA Attorney Bart Klaver produces evidence of misrepresentation of facts and evidence during a civil process for the benefit of Poweshiek County, IA. Is it not reasonable to conclude that he would possibly do the same during a criminal case when a person’s life, liberty, and freedom are at stake? Poweshiek County, IA Bart Klaver’s 15 DEC 2023 electronic mail, including only strategic character attacks (not supported by evidence) toward the Complainant (in this case, the originator of this electronic mail) and misrepresentation of critical facts and evidence are not consistent with Iowa Rules of the Court Chapter 32:4.1, 32:4.4(a.), 32:8.4(a.), or 32:8.4(c.). At the same time, the evidence supporting these acts provides evidence of the integrity and fitness of his entire law career.

Sadly, the evidence indicates that in the State of Iowa, the word vexatious refers to an event when a lower-class citizen provides evidence of an upper-class citizen’s misconduct that they feel entitled not to be held accountable for.

Conclusion: What is the sum of IPIB case 23FC:0123 and IPIB Executive Director Eckley’s tentative Dismissal? It shows that if an Iowa government body disregards requests for public records until the expiration of the availability of the public record being requested (supersession date), the government body can prevent public access to the data stored and preserved on that public record. As Iowans, we need to take a hard look at the facts regarding who and what we are as opposed to accepting the bullshit that is fed to us by those who seek to gain or profit from the misrepresentation or concealment of the truth.
