The Associated Press

City:

Washington, DC

Summary:

Some senior cabinet-level officials, including at least one department secretary, maintain one or more non-publicized email addresses for official work, ostensibly for avoiding unwanted correspondence, but risking incomplete accountability under open-records laws.

Notes:

The Associated Press used FOIA to obtain information from the Departments of Labor and Health & Human Services; requests have yet to be answered by several other agencies.
