Those Missing Emails

The scope of the missing email scandal at the White House is growing dramatically. The House Oversight Committee is now saying that email from 51 of the 88 accounts which used an RNC mail system are missing, including the account of White House Political Director Ken Mehlman. Of the remaining accounts, it seems many of the emails are missing. For example, of the over 140,000 emails sent or received by Karl Rove, only 131 are from Bush's first term. And none of those are from before November 2003.

The Administration's defenders are claiming that neither the Presidential Records Act, nor the Hatch Act have been violated, but that in not a settled fact.
