Ed Martin Pushes Back On E-mails

"Not Every E-mail Must Be Retained"

In an interview with the KY3 Political Notebook Thursday, Gov. Matt Blunt's former Chief of Staff Ed Martin responds to new deposition testimony by former Blunt attorney Scott Eckersley, that he encouraged staffers to delete e-mails regularly.

Martin refutes that, adding that the escalating allegations regarding the e-mail probe are beyond ridiculous. "Ridiculous doesn't even describe it," Martin said.

But the Associated Press reports: "At one point, Eckersley testified, Martin proposed making him a "records czar" and "suggested that I monitor folks' e-mail use, make sure their inboxes are kept low, deleting and then double deleting."
