BLOOMBERG: Clinton, Holder Fail To Disclose Travel Records; Fall Short on 'Obama Openness'

In her four years as the top U.S. diplomat, Hillary Clinton kept a running total of countries visited, miles traveled and hours spent in transit on the State Department website.
In fiscal 2011, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder took 62 out-of-town trips that cost at least $1.45 million, according to the disclosures.
Bloomberg News last year asked for the details of out-of-town trips for the heads of 57 major departments in fiscal 2011, a test of President Barack Obama’s pledge to run the most open government in history. As of July 12, about one-fifth of those surveyed hadn’t responded.
