Iowa Gov. Chet Culver learns an e-mail lesson

Iowa gov starts using state e-mail after scrutiny.

For two years after his 2006 election in which he professed his devotion to open government, Culver rarely used his government e-mail account, instead going to the trouble of sending his e-mails through:

  • A private e-mail address.
  • A privater server.
  • A private computer.

Culver said he did this in order to avoid violating a state law that forbids the use of government e-mail accounts for political or personal purposes.   Transparency advocates, according to the article, scoffed at this.
