Kettle, Meet Pot

We now know that Vice President Mike Pence routinely used an AOL email account to conduct state business when he was governor of Indiana. Seriously. Including during the campaign when he was repeatedly attacking Hillary Clinton for not using a government email account.

But wait, there is a difference. While there is no evidence that Clinton’s email server was ever hacked, we know for sure that Pence’s account was hacked. And yet he kept using an AOL account after that. AOL accounts have been hacked many times.

We also know that Pence used his AOL account to discuss sensitive topics, such as security at the governor’s residence, and non-public information about terrorism from the FBI. As governor, Pence oversaw the Indiana state police, national guard, and department of homeland security, and would have regularly communicated sensitive information to and from federal authorities.

Hypocritically, the state refused to disclose many of the emails that were hacked, because they are too sensitive. So I guess that means that it is easier for hackers to see these confidential emails than the American people.

    That’s what I would call a side quest. You are a hacker on your way to the President’s phone when suddently, you get the opportunity to hack the Vice-President’s email account. The goal; leak a maximum of sensitive info to Wikileaks and the newspapers. You do it, and you get all sorts of bonuses. Good luck!
