Read www.triplejfeed.com to see why Taylor Swift was disqualified.... it is not to do with Taylor Swift per say but how the voters did not vote fairly, and rigged the voting.

Dear Judith Maude,

FOI REQUEST - REFERENCE NUMBER 2015-004

I am writing to clarify the scope of my FOI request, referenced above.

To simplify the request I will narrow the scope to the following:

I request all correspondence and documents relating to the decision (including the reasoning behind the decision) to disqualify the Taylor Swift song 'Shake It Off' from the 2014 triple j Hottest 100.

I will also narrow the time period of the request to the period from 10 to 30 January 2015 to simplify the request.

Yours sincerely,

Casey Briggs

Dear Judith Maude,

I thank you for your response to my recent FOI request.

In your response you refer me to a similar request (reference number 2015-003). The copy of this available on the FOI Disclosure Log includes:

"Access is granted to 55 documents (being documents numbered 4, 8-10, 12, 19, 28, 31-4, 37-9, 43-4, 47, 51, 59, 62-3, 65-9, 76, 79-81, 83, 93, 111, 113, 119, 123, 134, 136, 145, 148, 151, 161, 164, 171, 184, 187-8, 191, 202, 211-16).

However there is no attachment including these documents anywhere in the document.

Are you able to provide this to me?

Yours sincerely,
