I disagree. Its quite simple.

The General Services Administration provides an IT infrastructure for government communications. They do so, rather than just let everyone use Googlemail, for several reasons:

  1. To secure the systems to the highest level technically possible.
  2. To meet standards of document retention, should those correspondences be required for legal review and/or congressional oversight.
  3. To insure that correspondences of historical value are preserved.

All employees are required to use those systems for government business. Period. For those reasons.

What you’re attempting here is a “no harm, no foul” argument. Doesn’t work like that. She was expected to use the government systems. She didn’t, and every reason that can be envisioned as to WHY she didn’t indicates a trait which is to many is disqualifying for elective office.

Free markets, free minds. Question all narratives. If you think one political party is right and the other party is evil, the problem with our politics is you.
