- White House e-mails lost despite daily audits
Bloomberg News

... The White House has failed to identify the outside contractor that 
conducted daily audits of the e-mail system.    The revelation that there were 
daily audits suggests that e-mails were destroyed, said Anne Weismann, general 
counsel of the nonprofit watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics 
in Washington, which sued the Bush administration in May over the missing 
e-mails.     "It's hard to imagine it could have been a technical problem," 
Weismann said in an interview. It is "incomprehensible that e-mail could go 
missing and it not be caught."     The White House Office of Administration 
hired the outside firm to conduct daily audits of its e-mail archiving system, 
yet its analysis found that the system failed to preserve e-mails on any given 
day, Waxman said. more [Bloomberg News via AZ Star]
