Description

Christina Bellantoni | December 30, 2009, 3:34PM Fulfilling one of the transparency goals of President Obama's administration, the White House today released more than 25,000 records of visitors who came through the gates at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue this year. Check out the names here, and TPMDC will update readers as we go through the names. The spreadsheet posted at WhiteHouse.gov offers the visitor's full name, date of visit, who they met with and in what room. These records cover from Sept. 16 to Sept. 30, and the monthly visitors logs will be a regular release going forward. There also are records of visitors who met with Vice President Joe Biden and his staff, but the system that collects the names is not in place yet for the vice president's residence at the Naval Observatory. The White House also released an additional set from before the policy went into effect covering from Obama's inauguration Jan. 20 to Sept. 16. It is the first full release of the names since the Obama administration settled an open government lawsuit with a promise to disclose all visitors with limited exception.
