So it turns out Mike Pence used a private email to send and receive sensitive information while he was Governor of Indiana. Not only that, he was hacked.
From The Indianapolis Star:
Emails released to IndyStar in response to a public records request show Pence communicated via his personal AOL account with top advisers on topics ranging from security gates at the governor’s residence to the state’s response to terror attacks across the globe. In one email, Pence’s top state homeland security adviser relayed an update from the FBI regarding the arrests of several men on federal terror-related charges.
Cyber-security experts say the emails raise concerns about whether such sensitive information was adequately protected from hackers, given that personal accounts like Pence’s are typically less secure than government email accounts. In fact, Pence’s personal account was hacked last summer.
Is it just me, or does this scenario sound familiar? I’m sure Trump supporters will remain consistent. Gotta lock him up, right?
