UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY TO SHRINK THE RANKS OF GOVERNMENT COMING ON NOVEMBER 7, 2012

It is against the law to shred documents and destroy hard disks containing information protected by the government’s archival rules …

National Archives and Records Administration’s records management approach is grounded in three principles:

• Federal agencies must economically and effectively create and manage records necessary to meet business needs
• Federal records must be kept long enough to protect rights and assure accountability, and
• Federal records of archival value must be preserved and made available by the National Archives for future generations.

NARA regulations affecting Federal agencies and their records management programs are found in Subchapter B of 36 Code of Federal Regulations Chapter XII. Part 1230 is especially important.

Part 1230 - Unlawful or Accidental Removal, Defacing, Alteration, or Destruction of Records

§ 1230.10 Who is responsible for preventing the unlawful or accidental removal, defacing, alteration, or destruction of records?

The heads of Federal agencies must:

(a) Prevent the unlawful or accidental removal, defacing, alteration, or destruction of records. Section 1222.24(a)(6) of this subchapter prohibits removing records from the legal custody of the agency. Records must not be destroyed except under the provisions of NARA-approved agency records schedules or the General Records Schedules issued by NARA;

(b) Take adequate measures to inform all employees and contractors of the provisions of the law relating to unauthorized destruction, removal, alteration or defacement of records;

(c) Implement and disseminate policies and procedures to ensure that records are protected against unlawful or accidental removal, defacing, alteration and destruction; and

(d) Direct that any unauthorized removal, defacing, alteration or destruction be reported to NARA.

§ 1230.12 What are the penalties for unlawful or accidental removal, defacing, alteration, or destruction of records?

The penalties for the unlawful or accidental removal, defacing, alteration, or destruction of Federal records or the attempt to do so, include a fine, imprisonment, or both (18 U.S.C. 641 and 2071).

Bottom line …

With the orgy of document destruction sure to commence on or about November 7, 2012, bureaucrats who order the destruction of documents can be investigated, charged and punished – thus removing them from the ranks of the government. As with all government prosecutions, the little fish will be given opportunities to testify about the activities of the bigger fish, so it is anticipated that many corrupt and incompetent government employees may be caught up in the document destruction scheme.

Now, if only the Republicans have the will to pursue the matter on behalf of “We the People” since they traditionally look the other way in some form of tacit acknowledgement that both parties are equally corrupt and liable to do stupid or criminal things.
