In the Fox News article about this it says that past secretaries of state also used had personal email addresses. I also really like that Jeb Bush said "I made my emails from when I was governor public, why can't you do the same?" Then I looked at Jeb Bush's email and found this at the bottom of one of this emails:
"Please note: Florida has a very broad public records law.
Most written communications to or from state officials regarding
state business are public records available to the public and
media upon request. Your e-mail communications may
therefore be subject to public disclosure."
What a louse! I also assume he had at least one personal email account. I mean, if state or federal officials want things kept off the record, they'll make sure it's off the record. And at the same time, the powers that be aren't going to allow the Secretary of State to operate independently and without oversight. I don't understand why this story is any more angering than what happens every day in Washington.
