By now, those paying attention at all know that Hillary Clinton illegally used private email for government business, illegally stored classified information on that system, and has lied repeatedly to obscure those two facts.
But the real scandal is the rampant use of private email by government officials, not just Clinton. Obama’s EPA administrator did it to email a lobbyist. Clinton has done it. We now know that Obama has done so as well.
Why do government officials use private systems? Surely they are more convenient. However, officials are using these private accounts to skirt public records laws and avoid accountability.
Every American should be insistent that government records be kept properly. Otherwise, we live under a shadow government that considers itself above the law.
