A House committee has launched an investigation into whether EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson used an email alias to try to hide correspondence from open-government requests and her agency’s own internal watchdog — something that Republican lawmakers said could run afoul of the law. The science committee has asked Ms. Jackson to turn over all information related to an email account under the name of “Richard Windsor,” which is one of the aliases identified by a researcher looking into the EPA.
The committee has also asked the White House's lawyer and EPA's inspector general to look into the matter and report back by the end of this month, saying that the secret email accounts could have been used to keep key information from official watchdogs as well as the public.
Well of course she's using secret e-mails and the like. It's the way these people operate... always undercover and in stealth mode. Openness would destroy these people like sunlight destroys vampires.
None of these "requests" will be honored. Those records will have to be subpoenaed and grabbed before they can be destroyed.
And odds are that whatever the House finally gets it's hands on will have been thoroughly sanitized.
What we need is a few hackers to go get these E-mails while they still exist in their original form.
