For years Democrats complained that the Bush Administration was skirting public transparency laws by using personal email accounts to conduct government business, then claiming privacy rights on those accounts. Karl Rove’s office famously made extensive use of personal/political email accounts to hide official government business interactions and snubbed calls for revealing their content, even deleting thousands of emails. Throughout the Bush term, Congressional Republicans didn’t complain one bit.
Now the same Republicans are trying to create a faux-scandal over global warming science by targeting an email sent by Bush’s EPA from her personal email account. The hypocrisy is all the worse when it is practiced by those who just plainly ignore the mountain of science about global warming for their own ideological reasons or out of convenience.
