*Response to We the People Petition on U.S. Attorney's Office Personnel
Aaron Swartz's death was a tragic, unthinkable loss for his family and
friends. Our sympathy continues to go out to those who were closest to him,
and to the many others whose lives he touched.
We also reaffirm our belief that a spirit of openness is what makes the
Internet such a powerful engine for economic growth, technological
innovation, and new ideas. That's why members of the Administration
continue to engage with advocates to ensure the Internet remains a free and
open platform as technology continues to disrupt industries and connect our
communities in ways we can't yet imagine. We will continue this engagement
as we tackle new questions on key issues such as citizen participation in
democracy, open access to information, privacy, intellectual property, free
speech, and security.
As to the specific personnel-related requests raised in your petitions, our
response must be limited. Consistent with the terms we laid out when we
began We the People
we will not address agency personnel matters in a petition response,
because we do not believe this is the appropriate forum in which to do so.
- Remove United States District Attorney Carmen Ortiz from office for
overreach in the case of Aaron Swartz.
