I finally did it! I put FOIA into a comic! Because I\'m a giant nerd.
Actually, before I went fulltime freelance I worked at a non profit that\'s dedicated to government openness. This is what you get from living in the DC area for too long. The politics of the place just seeps into your brain. I\'m actually surprised it\'s taken me so long to put this kind of thing into the comic. So there you go.
The Truth is out there!
Ally rubs her belly.
Mmmm… Love this place. So, have you ever thought about sending out FOIA requests to find out about your aunt?
Yeah, the Freedom of Information Act. FOIA gives us the right to know exactly what our government is doing. Regular citizens can request previously unreleased documents from any federal agency.
Ally continues. Annie grins.
So let’s say your aunt did indeed work for No Such Agency. You could send a request for any documents mentioning her name. You might not get anything useful, but we can give it a try.
You are such a nerd.
I may have spent a lot of time in college hanging out with UFO conspiracy activists. Because reasons.
