The NY Times reports that Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, according to State Department officials. She may have violated federal requirements that officials' correspondence be retained as part of the agency's record.

Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act. "It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario — short of nuclear winter — where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business," said attorney Jason R. Baron. A spokesman for Clinton defended her use of the personal email account and said she has been complying with the "letter and spirit of the rules."

    I'd like to see some back push on mainstream stories. Like any post that uses the name of a current aristocrat, or well known propagandist having the ASN of the originators network inserted into the post title. Yes I know you can just mangle the spelling, but that mangled spelling will keep SN off the data scrapers used by the unholy trilogy of network news. EEE isn't just for software anymore.
