Labor Sec. Tom Perez Used Personal Email Account To Leak Info To Planned Parenthood, New York Times

At Daily Caller by Chuck Ross  --

SHAW I heard this AM about a story that possible DNC head candidate Tom Perez had the same illegal email problem as Hillary Clinton. Here is a piece from back in JULY on this subject.

Tom Perez, the Secretary of Labor considered to be on the short list of Hillary Clinton running mates, used a personal email account to leak information to The New York Times and Planned Parenthood while he worked at the Department of Justice’s office for civil rights.

The story made minor waves in April 2013 when California Rep. Darrell Issa subpoenaed Perez’s personal emails. But it has taken on new significance in the wake of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email system and the Justice Department’s decision not to file charges against her for it.
Perez is not the only potential Clinton VP pick to be involved in a personal email scandal.

The Daily Caller reported earlier Wednesday that Agriculture Sec. Tom Vilsack used a personal email account while he served as governor of Iowa. He became involved in a scandal in 2004 when he admitted deleting work-related emails.

Perez’s use of personal email — which violated the Federal Records Act as well as mandates issued by the Obama White House — came to light as Republicans were investigating a deal that the progressive Democratic official brokered in 2012 between the DOJ and the city of St. Paul, Minn.
