THE MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION IN HISTORY — YOU CAN SEE RIGHT THROUGH THEM: CEI: Lisa Jackson used yet another non-EPA email account as ‘safe harbor’ from transparency.

Former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson used her old New Jersey state government email account to supplement the account that she operated under the alias “Richard Windsor,” which a watchdog group suggests was another attempt to avoid transparency laws.

“It was no longer an account anyone would think to search under any open records request because there was no defensible reason it still should be in operation,” the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s Chris Horner said in a statement today. “In other words, like the ‘Richard Windsor’ account, it looks like she assumed this was a safe harbor from the horrors of transparency in public office.”

If there were a Republican in the White House, this would be a big scandal.
