EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson Under Investigation For Use Of Private Email Accounts

Source: TPM



TOM KLUDT 12:15 PM EST, MONDAY DECEMBER 17, 2012

The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports:

The Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Inspector General announced Monday that it is beginning an audit of agency employees' use of private email accounts and "aliases" or false names in conducting official business.

In November, Republican leaders of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee began their own investigation into the alleged use of private emails after the Daily Caller reported that EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used alias email accounts, including one under the name of "Richard Windsor." At that time, it requested inspectors general for several federal agencies, including EPA, to conduct their own investigations.

3. Do they remember the GWB White House used RNC email for 8 long years?

I'm not saying I condone the practice, just pointing out the double standard.
