White House: As Many As 5 Million E-mails Possibly Missing

April 14, 2007 1:30 p.m. EST

Nicole King - All Headline News Staff Writer

Washington, DC (AHN) - It's the case of the missing e-mails, many times over. White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said Friday that millions of White House e-mails might be missing.

I think I know how this happened. Rose Mary Woods, before she passed away in her nursing home, kept the official White House email server in her room and was responsible for backing up emails. She reached waaay over from her bed to hit the "save" button on the server, while trying to keep her feet from knocking over her boxes of pills. As she reached she accidentally hit the "delete" button and all the emails were gone. Just an innocent mistake.

Well, just like everything else going on in Washington with King George at helm. Some of those e-mails are the bases of an investigation into abstruction of justice as well as other counts. So there sudden dissapearance is just another way of saying ____ you.

How else would one get rid of 5mm letters of complaint and criticism?

Of course there are probably another 200mm email complaints that have been ingored and not read.

bottom line. The pres probably only gets a statistical report that indicated the number of supporting and complaining responses that is categorized by topic.

THe volume is obviously too much for anyone to deal with.

Still remember a Rose Mary Woods political cartoon. Showed her holding an oversized hatchet with a tape recorder behind her all chopped up to h*ll.

Caption to the cartoon was "Oops!"

I suggest that they try looking for them on the same table where Hillary's lost files turned up.
