Sarah Westwood of the Washington Examiner reports on the latest high-profile Obama administration employee drawing fire for using a private email account.

Ambassador Caroline Kennedy became the latest high-level official in the Obama administration to be cited for conducting government business on a personal email account Tuesday when an inspector general criticized the risky practice.

“Such risks include data loss, hacking, phishing, and spoofing of email accounts, as well as inadequate protections for personally identifiable information,” the watchdog wrote in a report.

Kennedy, who secured her ambassadorship to Japan in 2013 after supporting President Obama’s reelection campaign, joins a host of administration officials who have faced public criticism for using a private email account to shield public records from scrutiny.

The recurring problem has plagued the State Department, the EPA, the IRS and other agencies, underscoring concerns that the Obama administration has been especially resistant to transparency despite the president’s inaugural pledge to make his the “most transparent administration in history.”
