Obama Open Gov't Chief Leaves Without Replacement

Looks like the Obama Administration's open government "czar" is now the Ambassador to the Czech Republic and his job is being done by people who already have plenty to do. That is, there will not be a replacement for the departing open government chief.

We won't be obnoxious and list all the promises of transparency and open government made by candidate Obama, President-Elect Obama, and then President Obama. The record has been abysmal. And after the last President, that is saying something.
