Betsy DeVos used personal email accounts for her government work as the Secretary of Education in 'limited' cases, the Inspector General said. The report also found DeVos did not consistently preserve her government-related email messages properly, as is required by federal law.
Most of the violating emails were people congratulating her on getting a job in the Trump administration.
BUT HER EMAILS.
From the Associated Press:
The agency's Office of Inspector General released a report finding "limited" instances in which DeVos sent work emails from four personal accounts.
Investigators say they found fewer than 100 emails to or from DeVos' personal accounts on the department's email system, and found no evidence of "active or extensive" use of her personal accounts.
But they found that the emails, which should have been forwarded to her government account, "were not always being properly preserved."
House Democrats asked for a review of her emails back in 2017.

However, you’ve probably discovered that high-end footwear almost always comes with eye-popping price tags. You’ve got to compromise on second-hand or just suck it up and take out a […]
We have a theory about those throw blankets that are barely big enough to cover your legs. The only people who seem to make them or use them are grandmothers, and the blankets are only that small because Nana got bored halfway through the sewing job. Look, we’re sure she means well. But if you […]
Remember when the default state of your online presence was anonymity? That’s not so clear-cut anymore, and the worst part is you may not even know who is using your data or what they’re using it for. Small wonder that so many people are choosing to surf through virtual private networks. VPNs filter web access […]
