Lisa Jackson admits motive for secret EPA e-mail account: ‘Because people would be able to locate her too easily’; Blames staff

Unspoken: “… and then FOIA her.”

From The Daily Princetonian:

“It is not an unofficial account,” Jackson said. She explained that the career staff at EPA advised her not to use the username “admjackson” — Jackson’s initial inclination — because people would be able to locate her too easily. As a result, she decided to use “Richard Windsor,” a combination of her dog, Ricky, and East Windsor Township, her previous residence.

  1. We all know that Obama does not personally look at POTUS@WhiteHouse.gov
    He probably has a second e-mail account that’s difficult to figure out that goes directly to him. However, it is almost certainly on the WhiteHouse.gov domain, and is recorded for his library.

    If they had responded to FOIA requests with two stacks “From LJackson@epa.gov” and “From Personal Account”, with the “From” line censored, then this would be all fine and dandy. However, they denied that the second account existed at all.

    It’s not the action, it’s the coverup.
