According to the paper, Palmer “systematically” destroys all the emails he sends and receives in his capacity as sheriff. He also uses a private email account to communicate in his professional capacity as sheriff.
“I don’t know of any other public official in Oregon who routinely destroys public records,” Charles Hinkle, an attorney specializing in media law, told the Oregonian. “Sheriff Palmer apparently deletes every email that he sends or receives on on the email address that is posted on the sheriff office’s website. He is apparently continuing to do so even after receiving a public records request for them.”
Who does this remind us of?
