ST. THOMAS - Lt. Gov. Osbert Potter denies that he or anyone in the Mapp administration changed any text in reports provided to The Daily News in response to public record requests.
However, the lieutenant governor's statements did little to explain why copies of government records that he had delivered to the newspaper had been altered, modified and possibly even re-written.
Potter told The Daily News on Friday that he is "not on any mission to hide things" from the public as he tries to answer the newspaper's public record requests.
