E-mail Breakfast

December 21st, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

The State Inspector General is looking into emails send during the debate on commuter rail by the secretary of the Dept. of Transportation. Three emails used words like Pancakes or Waffles in the subject line. The odd wording prompted CFO Alex Sink to ask for the investigation to see if the words were an attempt to avoid being discovered in a public records request. Sink says shell wait for the results of the investigation before passing judgment.

I think the Governor did the appropriate thing by asking his Inspector General to review the situation, and to see what all the facts are and hear her situation,” Sink said.”Im sure the Inspector General will do a good job of ensuring Floridians, I hope, that there was no malintent there.

The DOT says their software program would not have allowed the emails to go unnoticed in a public records search since it also searches the body of an email and attachments as well as the subject line.
