Vice President Dick Cheney is claiming he should have the sole authority to decide which of his records, if any, are handed over to the National Archives when he leaves office. The group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington is suing Cheney to ensure his records become public. The 1978 Presidential Records Act requires the President and Vice-President to transfer their records upon leaving office. In a court filing, Cheney’s lawyers say he will choose which of his records are personal and which pertain to his Vice-Presidential duties.

What a surprise!
