2013-04-13 Renna is a Journalist - Prosecutor Romankows political vendetta fails
By Tina Renna - County Watchers - | April 12, 2013 - http://www.countywatchers.com/?p=9024
Item 2013-04-12 Court - ORDERED that the subpoenas issued by the Union County Prosecutors Office dated January 4, 2013, requiring the appearance and testimony of Tina Renna are hereby found to be seeking privileged information protected by the newspersons privilege codified in N.J.S.A. 2A.84-21, and the subpoena is hereby quashed. Download pdf. Download OCR'd
For the Union County Prosecutors Office this issue has always been about the investigation into generator usage during and after Hurricane Sandy. For months Renna claimed that she had names of people who abused the system a number far greater than what investigators had uncovered. This case was never about revealing the source of the information she claims to have, but rather to get to the truth of what happened.
Rather than acting responsibly, or in the publics best interest, or publishing the names as she asserted she would, Renna hid behind the court, and now should be considered complicit in harboring the very people she believes committed misdeeds.
Personally, I believe she was caught in a lie and chose to waste time and money by hiding.
I have great respect for the freedom and speech of the press and believe that a real journalist would have long ago released honest information.
The ones who really lose today are the people of Union County. Renna, a self proclaimed watch dog thwarted the power of a grand jury a body composed of citizens that acts on behalf of citizens. Let it be remembered that Renna chose to hide rather than help. This is a stark contrast to her frequent proclamations that she seeks to root out corruption.
