Bush Officials Used RNC Server for Private E-mails

Bush Officials Used RNC Server for Private E-mails - washingtonpost.com: "Almost 90 White House officials have maintained private e-mail accounts on the server of the Republican National Committee"

"The [House Oversight] committee, chaired by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), has been investigating whether the e-mail accounts run by the RNC and the Bush-Cheney '04 campaign committee violated the Presidential Records Act, which requires that every White House official "assure that the activities, deliberations, decisions, and policies that reflect the performance of his constitutional, statutory, or other official or ceremonial duties are adequately documented."

First, the administration has to be performing constitutional duties -- not dismantling it.

Just more evidence this administration doesn't see the office as a public trust -- a job in which the people have the right to know what their government is doing. Instead, its about the secret deal and agenda.

When government ceases to be transparent, we're all in real trouble.
