To enable White House officials to conduct political business without getting into trouble for doing it with government equipment, the Republican National Committee (RNC) gave the officials RNC e-mail accounts several years ago. Those receiving the accounts included top White House advisor Karl Rove, according to news reports (Check out this Reuters report and this column in The Washington Post).
Trouble is, Rove apparently conducted some government business with his RNC account – a great way to keep that government business hidden.
Now, some of those official e-mails may erroneously have been deleted, the White House says. And some of Rove’s e-mails may have been related to the controversial firing of U.S. prosecutors.
Cover up? Or just an honest mistake? Stay tuned. Well almost certainly hear more about this one.
