    Conservative talker Mark Levin's legal unit, in a battle with the Environmental Protection Agency over allegations it delayed politically damaging regulatory moves until afterPresident Obama's reelection, is charging that agency big shots are destroying key emails and texts to hide those efforts.

    In the latest twist of his suit dating to August 2012, Levin'sLandmark Legal Foundation asked a federal judge to punish the EPA “for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages that may have helped document suspected agency efforts to influence the 2012 presidential election.”

    Landmark cited news reports before the election that indicated the agency was putting off unpopular regulations until after the president won his contest with Republican Mitt Romney. The agency has since cracked down on coal pollution.

    The EPA has fought Levin's demand for emails and texts from government and private email accounts of top officials, including former administrator Lisa Jackson. But Federal District Judge Royce Lamberth has sided with Landmark.

    The agency told Secrets that it is reviewing the Landmark filing. The "EPA is strongly committed to transparency and the strict compliance with open government laws such as the Freedom of Information Act. The agency will review the motion filed today, as a part of ongoing litigation with Landmark, and will respond accordingly," said a spokesperson.

    Destroying sensitive government emails is a problem on all levels.

    Email security should probably be centralized at every level of government and archiving should be taken out of the responsibilities of the entities where they originate.

    Yeah, it would be much harder to screw with if it was all in one place... unless, of course, that's where the screw-wer(s) work.

    So .... taxpayers are required to pay the salaries, bonuses, and benefits plans of the administrations lackeys who abuse their positions to attack, target groups of US citizens who do not embrace its leftist ways .... as well as the salaries, bonuses, and benefits plans of the IT group that destroys the evidence that would prove the misdeeds of the administration.
