EPA boss faces federal probe into lawbreaking

"The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) internal watchdog is looking into whether the agency uses separate internal email accounts to conduct government affairs," The Hill reports.

"EPA’s inspector general said the audit follows on a congressional request. Some lawmakers have pressed EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson for answers on her alleged use of a separate internal email account under the alias 'Richard Windsor.'"

The bogus email account was uncovered by Chris Horner, American Tradition Institute's Director of Litigation.

"Its office of the inspector general wants to know whether the agency’s email practices comply with federal laws. The concern is whether correspondence through internal accounts would show up in a search for federal records."
