While reading the March 18 editorial “The delay game,” I was struck by the similarities of the situations with Gov. Pat McCrory’s administration and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Each campaigned on transparency, yet each seems reluctant to let the taxpayers see emails.
The N&O said, “Public records laws must be followed, and the McCrory administration’s contempt for them is disturbing, coming from a governor who skewered the Democrats who preceded him in office for what he considered secrecy.”
This could be said about Clinton and her single personal email address for government business. She, too, skewered the Bush administration for having both personal and government email accounts and doing business on both, implying that they were hiding government business on their personal accounts. She, on the other hand, had just one account for both, on a server in her home that she had total control over. Then she decided which emails to give to the state department and deleted the other 30,000.
What could possibly go wrong there?
