Mike Pence Used Private Email and Got Hacked

Written by SK Ashby

Speaking of Benghazi, Republicans will surely be horrified to learn that Mike Pence used a personal email account for official state business as the governor of Indiana, right? No?

Emails obtained by the Indianapolis Star revealed that Pence used his personal email account even for sensitive security issues.

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.

Not only did Pence use a private email account for both public and private business, his account was reportedly hacked last year.

The fact that he was using an AOL email account may have something to do with his misfortune but, in response to being hacked, he set up another AOL email account.

Pence’s own account was compromised in June when a hacker sent a counterfeit email to his contacts claiming Pence he and his wife had been attacked on their way back to their hotel in the Philippines, losing their money, bank cards and mobile phone.

In response, Pence sent an email to those who had received the fake communication apologizing for any inconvenience. He also set up a new AOL account.

There is someone out there who likely has a copy of every public and private email Pence ever sent before June of 2016.

Hillary Clinton's private email server was never compromised.
