    I've read several articles on the situation with Jackson and understand it quite well. You apparently didn't read your own thread, or else you would've understood why union dues came up.

    Please stop being passive-aggressively dishonest.

    I am not being dishonest here. I am quite open in saying that I think that these emails are being used for exactly what the committee wants to investigate them for. Now, if you want to give any in the Obama administration the benefit of the doubt then fine, but one thing the EPA should do is come clean, otherwise they just look guilty.

    If you don't even know, then there should be no harm in releasing to the committee what they are requesting right?

    Oh, I have no problem with an investigation, but it's starting to get rediculous. If there is nothing to release, then what? I just smell amother made up scandal.

    *throws hands up in the air* Well, what the hell.....? I guess we should just not question a single thing this administration is doing, whether it smells or not? I sure do hope the next time repubs are in charge you all remember what you are saying here.

    What have you got on Obama so far? Benghazi? Lybia? Mali? Not even the big name Washington Republicans in DC are following up on that nonsense. Face it buddy, you lost the election and now want to find something to lynch Obama with. Sadly for you, the man will stay in power for the next 4 years. How do you like them apples?

    I tend to agree, however, because of the total lack of transparency, there's just no way to tell if that statement is accurate or not.

    Considering the track recond of any political party in power for more than two seconds, I can see where folks would speculate thusly.

    Re: Congress demands EPA’s secret email accounts

    I have a work email address and 2 or 3 non work email addresses. I use my work one for work. I use my others for non-work.
    Sometimes when I am at home I do work and send things from non-work to work. Sometimes when I am at work I send thinks from a non-work addy for a non-work related item.

    It is nice to say you should never do non-work stuff at work. The fact remains we all have lives outside of work and we have to tend to those parts of our lives. Sometimes we have to do it during office hours.
    It should not be encouraged, but it should be accepted that on occasion it will happen. At least for 99% of us.

    If this is abused, then there is a problem and it needs to be dealt with.

    I don't think instituting hefty fines to an admin assistant because she emails her son a reminder to take the feed the cat on a non-government email addy is appropriate.

    Let's find out where the investigation takes us before we start with tough rules and calls for more transparency.
