Second EPA Official Used Private Email for Official Correspondence

A big no-no


A second Environmental Protection Agency official stands accused of using a personal email address to shield communications with environmental activists from public disclosure.

Court documents show that EPA Region 8 Administrator James Martin corresponded with the Environmental Defense Fund — where he previously worked as an attorney — through his private email account.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson recently came under fire for her use of email aliases, before she announced her resignation.
