Vice President Mike Pence’s email controversy is growing.
Pence is demanding the Associated Press take down the private email address of his wife, Karen, after the AP published it, in a report detailing how the Pences used private email addresses to carry out official business for years when Mike Pence was the governor of Indiana.
Mike Pence believes the AP owes his wife an apology.
“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 serious security concerns,” the counselor to the vice president wrote to the president of the AP on Saturday. “There was absolutely no reason to publish this private email address, and you should be ashamed of your reprehensible conduct.”
The AP and The Indianapolis Star have reported that Mike Pence used his AOL account to discuss topics such as homeland security. Pence fought the release of these records as governor, but current Gov. Eric Holcomb decided to release 29 pages of emails from Mike Pence. That said, Holcomb’s office still withheld some emails that were said to be too confidential for public eyes.
This is ironic, because the campaign of Pence and President Donald Trump focused much attention on emails sent by rival Hillary Clinton that…oh, never mind.
