While serving as governor of Indiana, now-Vice President Mike Pence used a private email account to conduct state business, including the discussion of sensitive issues and homeland security, according to a report by USA Today. The same personal account was hacked last summer.
Indiana law does not prohibit public officials from having and using personal email accounts. However, the law is usually interpreted to mean that official business conducted over private email should be preserved for records.
What Pence said about Hillary’s email usage...
“What’s evident from all of the revelations over the last several weeks is that Hillary Clinton operated in such a way to keep her emails, and particularly her interactions while secretary of State with the Clinton Foundation, out of the public reach, out of public accountability,” Pence said.
Pence spokesman Marc Lotter told USA Today any comparison between Pence and Clinton is “absurd” and that Pence wouldn’t have been dealing with as sensitive or federally classified information.
Just a reminder - Hillary’s server was never hacked. Pence’s was. Republicon hypocrisy as usual.
