[Some of President Obama's political appointees, including the Cabinet secretary for the Health and Human Services Department, are using secret government email accounts...

...The secret email accounts complicate an agency's legal responsibilities to find and turn over emails in response to congressional or internal investigations, civil lawsuits or public records requests because employees assigned to compile such responses would necessarily need to know about the accounts to search them. Secret accounts also drive perceptions that government officials are trying to hide actions or decisions...]


OK, has this happened in other administrations? Probably. I ran a quick search and found nothing, but it likely has happened.

Should an administration who promised unprecedented TRANSPARENCY be using secret emails? That answer is obvious.

Should an administration that already has a hard time disclosing information be expected of anything less?

Hell no!

Holder has assured me that there was no wrong doing here. He personally investigated it.
