    Default Secret Email Addresses for Govt Employees

    AP has discovered that it is common practice for govt employees to have non-public email addresses, ostensibly because their "official" email address mailboxes get too crowded.

    This then makes it more difficult to determine whether all FOIA info has been duly released. Sometimes it is, but with multiple email addresses being used (not just one other than the official email address), it can be hard to determine whether all pertinent communications have been released.

    So ... if we are talking about the communications regarding the Benghazi talking points or the recent IRS debacle, do we really know if we are seeing ALL the communications that were exchanged?

    Sebelius has more than one address, for example. We already know that the EPA administrator used one which used a "nom de plume"; and even had a govt profile for the non-existent individual, Richard Windsor.

    Do we need to clean this house from attic to basement before the constituents can regain control of an out-of-control bureaucracy?

    Yes, but how are we going to do it ? Since this is a dog board lets compare it to fleas. Eggs, larva and mature. Got to have a plan to get them all.

    About 3 years ago our city administrator received a raise & perks that were undiscussed in any council meeting. So I put in a request for info, still undiscussed. But the interesting phenomena happened, though I had requested all correspondence on the subject from the committee members responsible & the mayor - There was no correspondence from the Mayor - So it is just not at the higher levels, there is an ingrained deceit button that all politicians have at their disposal .

    Hence, the reason why we may never know the real truth in some of the fiascos going on surrounding the White House and the other branches of Govmt. that's in question.
    Guess we really don't need to see every one of those private transcripts to come to a conclusion based on what evidence that has been collected from public records-

    Kind of like Gotti and other Mafia Bosses not talking on the phone or in public nor putting anything in writing.
