And as a voter, wouldn't you want to know how and why your elected politician did what they did, to better understand their thinking? It's one way to know if they're competent enough to be in office.
Oddly, Scott Walker doesn't think that's a good idea, nosy voters watching him and his administration coming up with policy. How will it will stop "creative thinking?" You know, creative suggestions and bad ideas that are mean, partisan, ugly and racist. Who needs to know who said what?
