Honey, We Lost the Emails

I can't say it any better than Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo:

Gosh, accidents do happen, don't they?

Just off the AP wire ...

The White House said Wednesday it had mishandled Republican Party-sponsored e-mail accounts used by nearly two dozen presidential aides, resulting in the loss of an undetermined number of e-mails concerning official White House business.

Congressional investigators looking into the administration's firing of eight federal prosecutors already had the nongovernmental e-mail accounts in their sights because some White House aides used them to help plan the U.S. attorneys' ouster. Democrats were questioning whether the use of the GOP-provided e-mail accounts was proof that the firings were political.

I guess we'll just never know since the emails accidentally disappeared. Darn.

Yeah, somehow they "accidently" securely destroyed all the evidence in a way that they can't be recovered. Kinda reminds me of the time that some documents I had requested in discovery somehow got burned up in a lawyers office. They just happened to be sitting on the floor right next to where the fire started. It was an "accident" of course.
