No one’s even claiming that James Martin is stepping down from his cushy government job to spend more time with his family.

EPA Region 8 administrator James Martin is resigning this week, according to a press release from Sen. David Vitter (R., La.). Martin faces a congressional probe for allegedly using a private email account to circumvent disclosure requirements.

Bob Perciasepe, the current acting EPA administrator, also used a private account to send emails to other EPA officials, Vitter said his office has discovered.

EPA administrator Lisa Jackson has already stepped down amid rumors that she quit because of the investigation into her use of private email, under the pseudonym “Richard Windsor,” to keep the agency’s deliberations off of official email that can be obtained by Congress.

Just about every official at the top of the EPA was in on the illegal email scam. They all should go, even though Obama is unlikely to ever appoint anyone who will conduct themselves any better.

"...she quit because of the investigation into her use of private email, under the pseudonym “Richard Windsor,” to keep the agency’s deliberations off of official email that can be obtained by Congress."

Not just Congress (but they would be the primary reason), but FOIA as well. Often, agencies dodge having to divulge information if the FOIA doesn't describe things fully: like if someone asked for all the email from Jackson, the EPA could claim it didn't cover her account under the pseudonym, which remains hidden from the public. That's one way to keep those pesky citizen watchdogs in the dark.
