The House GOP asks, with all due irony, where’s the transparency?
A new report from Republicans on the House Committee on Energy and Commerces reveals that Obama administration officials used personal email and met with lobbyists at a coffee shop across the street from the White House to avoid disclosure rules.
Scandalous. There must be more to it, right?
The catch: it appears the only reason Republicans knew about at least one set of the emails is because a White House official forwarded private emails to his official government account to comply with transparency rules.
My gut says the Romney administration wouldn’t be as forthcoming.
