In a low blow even for the utterly biased lefty media, Vice President Mike Pence’s wife, Karen, had her private email address published in an article by the AP.
Her private email address was published Friday, contained within 29 pages of old AOL emails that were released to the public by the Indianapolis Star, who obtained them through an open records request.
Mike Pence sent out two tweets addressing the publication, the first staying that his wife’s privacy had been violated, and another with a photo of a letter from his attorney requesting that the AP remove the email address and issue an apology. They apparently refused when initially asked to remove her email from their story.
“The publication of Mrs. Pence’s active private email address to millions of your readers has subjected her to vitriolic and malicious emails and raised serious security concerns,” Mark Paoletta, Counsel to the Vice President wrote in the letter.“There was absolutely no reason to publish this private email address, and you should be ashamed of your reprehensible conduct.” What could possibly constitute a justification for not retracting the story publishing her email? That it’s already out in the open now so there’s no point? An apology is the absolute least they could offer.
