  • Pence denies double standard in email scandal

Vice President Pence lashed out at the Associated Press on Saturday for listing his wife's email address in a story about his frequent resistance to public records requests while Indiana's governor.

Pence posted his concerns and a letter on Twitter about a Friday news report.

For months on the campaign trail, Pence accused Clinton of being dishonest and threatening USA national security because she used an unsecured private email server while she was secretary of state. "There was absolutely no reason to publish this private email address, and you should be ashamed of your reprehensible conduct".

Pence used a personal email when he discussed issues like the resettling of Syrian refugees and other matters on an AOL account that was hacked in a phishing scam, according to emails released Thursday.

"The AP stands by its story, which addresses important transparency issues", she added.

Attorneys for Pence delivered the emails Thursday to be archived for public review as required under IN law.

Meanwhile, thirteen boxes of emails from Vice President Mike Pence's term as IN governor have been turned over to state government as of Saturday morning, about two months after an earlier attempt didn't work, a spokesman said.

The spokesman also said that Pence's attorney tried to turn over the boxes on the last day of Pence serving as the governor which is on Jan 9.

It said: 'Similar to previous governors, during his time as Governor of Indiana, Mike Pence maintained a state email account and a personal email account.

Pence's representatives released a statement following the disclosure.

An IndyStar investigation uncovered that the vice president used an AOL email account to conduct state business while he was governor (he served from 2013-17).

'We have fully complied with all of Indiana's laws'.

"Your organization should apologize to Mrs. Pence for violating her privacy, and the Associated Press should observe the basic tenets of fairness, decency and journalistic integrity in covering the Vice President, Mrs. Pency and their family in the future" the letter concluded.

The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/2m4OK6j ) says the emails were delivered Thursday to be archived for public review as required under Indiana law. Many called the vice president a hypocrite after his criticism of Clinton's private email server during the 2016 campaign season. Pence's AOL account was subjected to a phishing scheme last spring, before he was chosen by Donald Trump to join the GOP presidential ticket.
