Holder has had 3 secret email identities, DOJ admits; ‘what is his porn name?’

Attorney General Eric Holder has used three secret email accounts with three separate pseudonyms during his time at the Justice Department.

So much for the most transparent administration.

DOJ spokesman Brian Fallon said in an email, coincidentally, that even though he used secretive email accounts all of Holder’s emails are preserved on the agency’s email system.

“Meaning while his email address is not [email protected], it is still preserved for recordkeeping, etc, because it is a DOJ account,” he said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

According to Fallon the practice of using email aliases is not uncommon among top government officials.

“As with many Cabinet officials, he does not use his given name in the handle of his email address,” he said. “This practice is similar to using initials or numbers in an email address and helps guard against security risks and prevent his inbox from being needlessly inundated.”

Fallon confirmed two of Holder’s previous pen names as Henry Yearwood and David Kendricks.

The first is a mix of his mother’s maiden name and another family member’s first name while the latter is a mix of Temptations members David Ruffin and Eddie Kendricks, according to the Huffington Post. (The convoluted formula led one Twitter user to ask “what is his porn name?”)

He also said the aliases did not conflict with Freedom of Information Act requests.

“The attorney general’s email address is known to the people who process Freedom of Information Act requests and his emails are regularly produced, albeit with his exact address redacted,” he said.

Twitter users reacted with a combination of suspicion and mockery.
