From the White House admiting a handful of government employees also had RNC email accounts, to their admiting 50, it has now gone up to at least 88. It is also apparent the accounts were used for official business but where they did not want a permanent record kept. During the Abramoff investigation it was revealed a White House official gave specific instruction for lobbyists to use that account for "security reasons," the security of not having to reveal illegal activity.
For 51 members of government the RNC wiped all the emails from their system. For others like Rove many are missing.
This was part of making the entire federal government the political machine of Bush and his party in violation of the Hatch Act and in violation of record keeping standards which could document the atrocities.
