Gee, I wonder why Obama administration officials have been using fake email addresses. Are they trying to conceal their activities from the public? What would someone like EPA administrator Lisa Jackson be hiding?
The House science committee is demanding the White House explain why top administration officials are using secret e-mail accounts and other techniques to conceal their taxpayer-paid activities from public oversight.
The evidence of officials’ efforts to evade transparency laws includes EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson’s use of the fake name “Richard Windsor”, and hidden e-mail accounts, according to a Nov. 16 letter sent by the committee to several White House officials, including Jackson. …
“The use of these [hidden] accounts could seriously impair records collection, preservation, and access, therefore compromising transparency and oversight,” said the letter, signed by committee chairman Rep. Ralph Hall.
The letter also asked Jackson’s office to provide all records related to “‘Richard Windsor’ or other aliases used by the EPA Administrator or senior management…. [plus] records relating to the establishment or use of dual, secondary, or non-public email accounts.”
Read the whole thing, Jackson isn’t the only one who received a letter. Oh, and naturally, Democrats on the committee didn’t sign the letter. This administration can be as corrupt as it wants and they wouldn’t do a thing to stop it.
