People with nothing to hide don’t destroy emails and remove hard drives from government computers. Secrecy and hidden dirt is becoming Mitt Romney’s theme song.
Flashback from November 2011 — Romney admits he destroyed government records:
Think Progress: “…a Boston Globe investigation uncovered that former Gov. Mitt Romney’s administration destroyed emails, purchased hard drives, and otherwise obliterated all digital records of his time as governor of Massachusetts. This happened as Romney was leaving the state to campaign for president (the first time), and observers immediately speculated that the systematic destruction was politically motivated to hide embarrassing data. Romney and his campaign have so far denied this, with the candidate saying this weekend in New Hampshire that his staff took the highly unusual step of purchasing their work hard drives because they might contain “confidential and private” information. Meanwhile, he’s made calls for greater White House transparency a part of his campaign message. [In an interview on Nov. 21, 2011] Romney suggested that his administration deleted emails because they didn’t want “opposition research teams” to have access to them.”
The flying monkeys would have been unleashed permanently if Obama had done something like this.
