1. It is my understanding that government keeping email stored on any single individual’s computer is a violation of the record retention law. It is highly unlikely the government allowed a single copy of her email store to reside on her individual computer. If that is the case, the IT involved is not only incompetent, but criminally negligent and should also be charged. Unfortunately, incompetence has typically meant promotion in government since the turn of the century. Probably reward the IT staff with a foreign embassy position in the Caribbean.
