The Rhode Island chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union has filed a public records request seeking answers to questions surrounding the so-called Cranston parking ticket scandal.

The wards of two Cranston city councilors were blanketed with parking tickets the day after they voted against a police union contract. The police captain who authorized the ticketing has now stepped forward to publicly identify himself.
