Iowa Defense Alliance: What is Chet Culver hiding?

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

According to a State of Iowa website, Governor Chet Culver and Patty
Judge are "committed to making Iowa government open and transparent."
Perhaps Governor Culver forgot about his pledge on the website
openup.iowa.gov or perhaps he just doesn't care. Recently Culver had
requested that his department heads provide him with recommendations
on what he could safely cut out of the state budget. Apparently he
received those recommendations from his underlings because today he
announced over $70 million in budget cuts. On December 2nd the Des
Moines Register submitted a formal written request for the documents.
The request was denied. According to the Register they received a
letter from Culver's attorney, Jim Larew, stating that the documents
in question are "privileged communications between the governor and
officers of the executive department."
