Pence awaits apologies from Associated Press for publishing spouse email
Vice President Michael Pence demanded an apology from the Associated Press, which published the email address of the country's second lady and his wife, Karen.
The IndyStar study found that the vice president was using a private email account for business contacts while he was governor from 2013 to 2017. IndyStar reports that he received about 30 emails demanding to make the documentation public.
On social media around 17pm on Saturday, Pence wrote, “Last night @AP posted my wife’s personal email address, violating her privacy and our safety….”
After a minute, he sent another tweet with a photo of a letter from his lawyer, Mark Pallett, addressed to Gerry Priwuytt, President and CEO of the Associated Press.
In the letter, he writes: “I am writing to express serious concern about the Associated Press, which recklessly and irresponsibly published Karen Pence's private email address in an article dated March 3, 2017 ... Posting an active private email address for Mrs. Pence to your millions of readers has been exposed to malware emails and raised security concerns. There was absolutely no reason to post this personal email address and you should be ashamed of your behavior. "
Media Relations Director, Lauren Easton, said that AP deleted the address as soon as they found out that he was active, IndyStar writes.
For his part, Pallett added that Pens, having learned about the publication, contacted reporter Brian Slodshko, who was surprised that the email address was still in use.
Meanwhile, NY Daily News is wondering if there could have been secret information, given that the vice-president’s email was hacked last year.
The subject of private email servers and controversial policies became one of the main themes during the 2016 presidential campaign of the year, blackening Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for use private e-mail while working as state secretary.
