DC employees can't skirt FOIA with private email

Mayor Vincent Gray signed an order July 10, 2012 limiting D.C. employees' use of personal email to transact public business. DCist pointed to several examples of administrators using personal email in their public capacities. The order will require employees who do use private email to provide copies to their official D.C. email accounts. This policy does not apply to the D.C. Council or its staff.
