Obama’s EPA Administrator Using Fake Email Address To Avoid Records Requests?

jackson-obama-epa

Congress is looking into allegations that President Obama’s EPA administrator Lisa Jackson has been using a fake email account to avoid open records requests.

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.

EPA did not respond Friday night to a request for comment.

Just another “good government” brought to you by what has become America’s most mendacious, troublesome regulatory agency.

    I gotta get a hearing aid, I thought he said the most transparent administration in history, not the most invisible one. Maybe I just didn’t understand.

    And we here in this great country re-elected a bonifide Scio-Marixist leaning bigot and liar. What’s to fear, they’ve accomplished what they intended to do in less than 20 years.

    Amazing that you guys are quick to judge, but know nothing about Notes. …Incorrect info….. The other lJacks very likely belong to other users to happen to share these same common initials. Only one probably belongs to her? The others? One is a COOP laptop that they use to when doing an exercise, one is a desktop support and one is a Notes Admin.. and a special Assistant would have access to her calendar, as would Stroman.. In other words if accessed you calendar to look at her schedule, then my PC would show up as well. Be careful before judging without knowing details and everything is not a conspiracy….
