In a prepared response, Fallin's spokesman, Alex Weintz, stood behind the governor's decision to withhold the documents.

Weintz said executive and deliberative process privileges are recognized by the federal government and 46 states and that Fallin is “confident in her legal position.”

“She remains committed to following the letter and spirit of the law regarding Open Records, under which all nonprivileged documents are made public,” he said. “That is why she recently turned over 50,000 pages of document as requested by the press, withholding less than one tenth of a percent of that amount for reasons of privilege. As our office has explained before, these privileges are important in ensuring the governor can receive candid and private advice from her senior advisers.”
