Top Jindal aides use personal email to strategize

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Top officials in Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s administration used personal email accounts to craft a media strategy for cutting Medicaid — a method of communication that can make it more difficult to track under public records laws.

Jindal, now in his second term, has become a leading voice among Republican governors and is considered a potential presidential candidate. His administration’s emails fold into a national debate over the use of personal email accounts by government members to discuss official business.

The issue was a prominent one during the administration of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.

Louisiana emails reviewed by The Associated Press reveal that non- government email addresses were used dozens of times by state officials to communicate last summer about a public relations offensive for health care cuts.
