Iowa Defense Alliance: Governor Culver succumbs to pressure on private e-mail accounts

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance

After two years of thumbing his nose at open records advocates Iowa
Governor Chet Culver has finally succumbed to the pressure. For the
first two years of his term Culver and his lieutenant governor Patty
Judge refused to use their state provided email accounts for
government business. Instead the terrible twosome opted to use private
email accounts for all of their business, both state and personal.
Finally Culver and Judge are going to start regularly using their
state provided email accounts to conduct official business. According
to the Des Moines Register Iowa law forbids state computers and email
to be use for political and personal. Supposedly this is the law that
Culver and Judge were using their private email account to avoid
violating.
