Hillary wasn’t the only Democrat using private email accounts to conduct public business. Thanks to a lawsuit by The Better Government Association (BGA), the public now has access to some of Rahm Emanuel’s private emails.
“It’s unfortunate that it took a lawsuit to produce the transparency we all deserve,” said BGA President and CEO Andy Shaw. “But that said, this is a major step forward in the fight for transparency at City Hall.”

One of the most damning items released involves Rahm bragging about cutting retiree benefits.

As a condition of BGA’s settlement with Rahm, the Mayor and his attorneys were allowed to decide which emails should be turned over.
In settling the BGA lawsuit, Emanuel agreed to turn over about 2,700 pages of emails that his personal attorney determined were government-related in nature.
So who knows what was really in his private account.
Also, since Rahm had his own domain (like Hillary), and not a gmail account, was he using his own server too? Did he have a server in a bathroom like his pal Hillary did?
