I'm not a lawyer, but couldn't he exempt himself and they black out
the other people's names? If he could provide some evidence that this
isn't a publicity stunt and interest a major media organization or a
civil rights group (like the ACLU or EFF), I suspect they could apply
enough political and legal pressure to avoid getting brushed off.

Besides, if this were legitimate, it could benefit the Democrats
(given that it supposedly occurred during the Bush administration), so
how hard would they really fight it?
