VP Mike Pence Says Associated Press Owes Apology For Publishing Wife's Email

"The publication of Mrs. Pence's active private email address to millions of your readers has subjected her to vitriolic and malicious emails and raised security concerns". The reporter said Pence used the email for issues related to homeland security. "There was absolutely no reason to publish this private email address, and you should be ashamed of your reprehensible conduct".

Though Pence defended the use of a private AOL email address while serving as Governor of IN, the website he used for his campaign has listed a range of contact options over the course of his time as Governor, including email addresses at that website's eponymous domain, and a directive to simply visit the official state government site.

A rep for the AP responds that it "removed the email address from subsequent stories after learning Mrs. Pence still used the account".

"The AP stands by its story, which addresses important transparency issues", Easton said in the statement. The emails and the successful hack of Pence's email account were first reported Thursday night by The Indianapolis Star.

Lotter says Pence's attorneys tried to deliver boxes of emails on January 9, his last day as governor.

IN law does not prohibit Pence's use of the email account, but the law is typically interpreted to mean that any business done on a private email must be retained for public record keeping.




The AP story which revealed Karen Pence's private email address discussed Mike Pence's use of a private AOL email account to conduct official business, which was revealed by theIndianapolis Star on Thursday.

"I'm very confident we are in full compliance with all of Indiana's laws". But Lotter says there was a "lack of clarity" in state government about what to do with them. "We had outside counsel review all of my private email records to identify any emails that ever referenced or mentioned state business related activities and as IN law requires, we transferred all of those to the state of IN public access laws". He accused Clinton of "having a private server, misusing classified information, destroying emails when they were requested by the Congress".

'We have fully complied with all of Indiana's laws'.

Pence spoke publicly about the email controversy on Friday, after an event in Wisconsin, where he was asked if his private email account was equatable to the controversy over Hillary Clinton's private email server.

The emails are from government accounts as well as Pence's private email account used for government business, spokesman Marc Lotter said.
