Pence chides Associated Press for publishing wife’s email address

Saturday Vice President Pence lashed out at the Associated Press for listing his wife’s email address in a story about his frequent resistance to public records requests while Indiana’s governor.

Pence said in a tweet that by publishing his wife’s personal AOL email address, the Associated Press “violated her privacy and our security.” The vice president posted a letter his counsel sent to Gary Pruitt, the AP’s president and CEO.

Lauren Easton, the AP’s director of media relations, said the news organization removed the email address when they realized Karen Pence still used the account.

“AP removed the email address from subsequent stories after learning Mrs. Pence still used the account. The AP stands by its story, which addresses important transparency issues,” Easton said in a statement.

That’s not the point. It shouldn’t have been posted without permission in the first place.
