Is It Soup Yet?

For the past few weeks I have been following (here and here), with great interest, stories about White House staffers using non-governmental email accounts while discussing government business on ‘company’ time. Obviously, that makes them somewhat more difficult to find (especially if people searching didn’t know there was any off site email to begin with).

It seemed like such an explosive story… but there’s hardly any buzz.

The LA Times seems to be carrying the water on this. Wednesday evening they added:

The White House said today that it may have lost what could amount to thousands of messages sent through a private e-mail system used by political guru Karl Rove and at least 50 other top officials, an admission that stirred anger and dismay among congressional investigators.

I hate it when email gets lost. It’s so convenient tragic.

This story has been bubbling for a while – weeks now. Will it graduate to the big leagues? Who knows. It’s funny how some stories ooze out as opposed to break out.

It still looks like a big story to me.
