Washington, March 3: US Vice President Mike Pence routinely used a private email account to conduct public business when he was Governor of India, at times discussing sensitive matters and homeland security issues, a media report said. According to a report in the Indiapolis Star newspaper on Thursday, Pence used his persol AOL email account to communicate with top advisers on matters ranging from the security gates at the Governor’s residence to the state’s response to terrorist attacks across the globe. Pence’s use of persol email to conduct public business echoed Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server and email account when she was Secretary of State. That practice was the subject of investigations and drew considerable criticism. In an appearance on “Meet the Press” in September last year, Pence, who took office as Governor in 2013, said Clinton had used the private server to keep her emails “out of the public reach, out of public accountability.” Pence spokesman Marc Lotter called any comparisons between Pence and Clinton “absurd”, noting that Pence didn’t deal with federally-classified information as Governor.
