At a recent debate Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman challenged Dean to sign a letter unsealing all of the private papers. Dean replied that he wanted the issue to be decided by a judge. Markowitz says the Lieberman challenge is not grounded in reality because some records - such as documents relating to Vermont Yankee - have been ordered sealed by the federal government:
(Markowitz) "That's actually not accurate. While it's true that there's an agreement entered into to keep particular records confidential, there's a lot of other privileges and this is an example of one situation where there's documents that a governor can't open up. And so it's really on some level not up to the former governor to open up the records."
