Can we assume that since he now works with the government, he will have a government email address.?I'm sure his gmail address is used as his "personal" email. Then why is it so wrong that he is still in contact with people from google in his personal email? Should he cut all ties with his old friends just because he got a new job? Is it fair then that he should have all of these emails released under freedom of information? Its a difficult one to call.
Unless of course the government is using google apps for email.... well then we should just lie down and get ready for the Thought Police
