Maybe not, but that is a strictly legal argument. The damage may have already been done by the new perception of these guys in the public's eyes.

Just like the Acorn videos.

This will go absolutely nowhere and is the reason they didn't get anything in 2007.

Exemption 5: Internal Government Communications
The FOIA's fifth exemption applies to internal government documents. An example is a letter from one government department to another about a joint decision that has not yet been made. Another example is a memorandum from an agency employee to his supervisor describing options for conducting the agency's business.

Exemption 6: Personal Privacy
The sixth exemption covers personnel, medical, and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. This exemption protects the privacy interests of individuals by allowing an agency to withhold intimate personal data kept in government files. Only individuals have privacy interests. Corporations and other legal persons have no privacy rights under the sixth exemption.
