Business or bacon?

    The ongoing saga now known as breakfastgate continues, with Montgomery County Commissioners Joe Hoeffel and Jim Matthews accused of feasting on eggs over easy with a side of county business talk.

    The Philadelphia Inquirer reports the grand jury investigating whether the meetings violate the state’s Sunshine Law has subpoenaed both commissioners’ calendars, giving them just one day to turn them over.

    The legal issue here is that because there are only three commissioners, a meeting between two of them constitutes a quorum and is subject to open-meeting laws.

    Do you think this kind of thing should fall under the Sunshine Law?  Is it a technicality?  Let us know what you think.  Feed the Feed.
