One of the state's leading Muslim groups on Friday asked Palm Beach County officials to turn over all of the social media comments made on county computers by a public affairs employee who posted an anti-Islamic message on his private Facebook page.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida, Inc. emailed a public records request to the county commission asking for communications sent by employee John Jamason from any county computer within the last 30 days. The group requested any social media comments that Jamason received using a county computer within the same time frame.
In addition the group's attorney, Wilfredo A. Ruiz, asked for all emails that were from or to Jamason's county email address within the last three days. The group also asked for all emails that Jamason sent or received within the last 60 days that deal with Muslims, Muslim organizations, the Muslim community, Islam, Islamic organizations or Islamic centers.
