I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
I can see a case being made for someone seeing this as the most corrupt administration. For us young-ins, I can read text in a history book about a more corrupt administration all day. But to actually see it live is different than reading about it.
It is similar to reading about a murder that occurred 100 years ago, and watching it live. The one 100 years ago may be more grotesque, but I guarantee you someone witnessing a murder live will say the one they saw is more grotesque.
To brush his observations aside as partisanship or understanding is flawed.

Bush White House email controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Bush White House email controversy surfaced in 2007, during the controversy involving the dismissal of eight U.S. attorneys. Congressional requests for administration documents while investigating the dismissals of the U.S. attorneys required the Bush administration to reveal that not all internal White House emails were available, because they were sent via a non-government domain hosted on an email server not controlled by the federal government. Conducting governmental business in this manner is a possible violation of the Presidential Records Act of 1978, and the Hatch Act. Over 5 million emails may have been lost or deleted. Greg Palast claims to have come up with 500 of the Karl Rove lost emails, leading to damaging allegations. In 2009, it was announced that as many as 22 million emails may have been deleted.

The administration officials had been using a private Internet domain, called gwb43.com, owned by and hosted on an email server run by the Republican National Committee, for various communications of unknown content or purpose. The domain name is an acronym standing for "George W. Bush, 43rd" President of the United States. The server came public when it was discovered that J. Scott Jennings, the White House's deputy director of political affairs, was using a gwb43.com email address to discuss the firing of the U.S. attorney for Arkansas. Communications by federal employees were also found on georgewbush.com (registered to "Bush-Cheney '04, Inc.") and rnchq.org (registered to "Republican National Committee"), but, unlike these two servers, gwb43.com has no Web server connected to it — it is used only for email.
Right now all we know is that a personal email account was used. We don't know in what capacity, we don't know what happened, etc. Yet some are acting like this is the next Watergate. THAT is what is partisan.
It's ok to have concerns, but when those concerns turn automatically into outlandish accusations, THAT is where partisan hackery comes in.
