Now you too can assume a false email identity.

The conservative group Americans for Tax Reform has set up an EPA Fake Identity Creator website, alluding to allegations that the head of the Environmental Protection Agency used an email alias to shield messages from public disclosure. (RELATED: EPA chief’s secret emails revealed)

If you provide your name, email address, and zip code, the site will generate a fake email identity for you.

“Got something to hide? Don’t want Congress or pesky taxpayers to find out how you spend your time?” the site reads. “Then take a page from outgoing EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson’s playbook and just make up a new identity.”

The website also mentions the name Jackson used on her alias account, “Richard Windsor.”

“Get creative with it, don’t let traditional limitations like ‘gender’ hold you back – Ms. Jackson went by Richard Windsor.”

Jackson’s emails were the subject of a lawsuit by the Competitive Enterprise, a free-market think tank. Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter described the EPA’s release of Jackson’s emails — with the address redacted — as “incredibly fishy.”

“It seems that EPA simply decided they had to produce a lot of something,” CEI senior fellow Chris Horner said in a statement. “Desperate to produce nothing at the same time, they came up with this.”

The ATR website allows users to send a letter to Congress demanding the release of Jackson’s emails and greater transparency from the EPA.
