    Seems like a case of too much hubris.

    It seems that you see this in states where one party is dominant. Probably the people involved think that this means they are "safe" and can do whatever they want.

    Apparently, Kitzhaber’s executive assistant, Jan Murdoch, sent out a request for state officials to delete emails from Kitzhaber. I would imagine this includes responses to the emails. Apparently, it would be illegal to do so, since they are public records.

    One should expect emails at work to be retained as permanent records, more or less. At the previous job, we were warned not to use work email for personal matters. At the current job, one does not use equipment for personal use. Some companies may be more flexible than others, but most governments seem to discourage use of government property for personal use. In the case of Kitzhaber, there appears to be some concern that government matters and personal matters somehow got blended, if I'm interpreting the news reports correctly.

    Ms. Hayes seems like a set of conflicts of interest.
