I’m putting that in a headline because a lot of people want to pretend otherwise.
Vice President Mike Pence has come under fire for reportedly using a private email account for government business during his tenure as Indiana governor, which was hacked in June.
A number of the emails exchanged from his personal AOL account contained sensitive information relating to homeland security, according to the IndyStar…
A-ha! What a hypocrite! He’s just like Hillary! Emails! Look, emails!!!
Calm down. Take a breath. Pay attention:
Under Indiana state law, public officials are not prohibited from using personal email accounts, but are encouraged to preserve the exchanges for transparency reasons.
That’s the difference. Hillary Clinton knew she wasn’t supposed to set up a private email server to elude oversight, and she did it anyway. Then she lied and lied and lied about it. That’s not what’s happening here.
The only thing Mike Pence has to be ashamed about here is using AOL. But I’m not one to talk, because I didn’t get around to canceling my account until a few years ago. They don’t exactly make it easy!
Welcome to the Dumb Hoosiers Who Had AOL Accounts Past 2005 Club, Mr. Vice President. Don’t mind those guys. They’re just trying to deal with the fact that Hillary lost, and this is a coping mechanism. They’ll move on to the next manufactured outrage any minute now. Just make sure you keep your feet off the couch…
