Transparency in the Obama regime means hide everything. The pattern of using secret/personal e-mails to hide their agenda continues.
From Daily Caller:
Last week the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of the Inspector General announced an audit of the agency’s electronic records management practice to determine if it follows the law when conducting official business using private and alias email accounts.
“Our objective is to determine whether EPA follows applicable laws and regulations when using private and alias email accounts to conduct official business,” reads a memorandum from EPA Assistant Inspector General for Audit Melissa Heist. The audit was announced in response to a request last month by the House Science Committee.
Citing a report by The Daily Caller News Foundation revealing Lisa Jackson’s alias email account, the House Science Committee sent a letter to Jackson demanding that the EPA provide documents and information related to the use of alias email accounts.
Who got caught first? Another Obama appointee, and Socialist, Carol Browner.
[…]According to Chris Horner, senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the practice was instituted by Carol Browner, former director of the Obama White House Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy and Bill Clinton’s EPA administrator.
“I stumbled across an obscure EPA memo admitting to the ‘alias’ accounts having been created by someone who also had ordered her hard drive and backup tapes erased (Carol Browner), and that the accounts were set on auto-delete,” Horner told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email.
[…]Last month, the Horner told The Daily Caller News Foundation that he learned from two former EPA officials that EPA Chief Jackson used an alias email account under the name “Richard Windsor.”
“Richard Windsor” was just “[o]ne of the alternate email addresses she used,” said Horner, meaning there could be more.
