Vice President Mike Pence was very upset with the Associated Press. Typically cool headed, he discredited them in a tweet, calling them out for publishing his wife’s personal email address, compromising both her safety and security in the process. After asking them to take it down, they refused. Obviously the Associated Press are not in the right for the blatant violation of her privacy. Constantly being in the public spotlight is tough, especially with all the harsh criticisms of the left, who are just hunting for opportunities to hurt the Trump Administration. Media typically redacts and never prints active email addresses of politicians, and most certainly not the personal email addresses of their wives. Why now?
From Young Conservatives:
So why did the AP do it and why wouldn’t they remove it when asked? Some media doesn’t care who they hurt. Mike Pence’s email came up as a subject of media interest when it was learned that he had a private email when he was governor of Indiana. However, unlike Hillary Clinton, there were no laws/rules prohibiting that in the case of Pence. Pence also archived all his emails for the state and had no classified information in the emails.
