The article reports that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) has filed a number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) in a likely effort to dig up dirt on U.S. presidential hopeful Fred Thompson. It relates that the FOIAs filed by DNC researcher David Schnitzer were addressed to dozens of government agencies seeking communications between them and Thompson. Moreover, political analysts infer that the extent of DNCs effort reflects that it is taking Thompsons candidacy seriously.
