And Speaking of Missing Emails

So far the RNC has spent $231,615 looking for Turdblossom’s missing emails.

The Sleuth has learned, the hunt for those missing gigabytes has cost the RNC more than $250,000.

According to an RNC filing with the Federal Election Commission, the committee paid $231,615 in October to Stroz Friedberg,a forensics firm chock full of former FBI agents hired to retrieve thelost electronic data. The report shows the committee also paid $41,217in October to Covington & Burling, the law firm representing the RNC on the missing e-mail controversy.

But now that we know the RNC has paid Stroz Friedberg nearly aquarter million dollars, does that mean they’ve found the missinge-mail messages?

The RNC isn’t saying, nor is Stroz Friedberg.

So add that $231,615 to the $90,000 that Congressman Tom Feeney has paid to FTI to (apparently) recover his own missing emails.

This habit of deleting emails is beginning to cost the Republicans. How long do you think it’ll be before they start a special kind of defense fund, the email reconstruction fund (and celebrity golf tournament)?
