Flashback 2007: Press Secretary Dana Perino on Personal White House Email Use

Mar 28, 2007
Acting White House Press Secretary Dana Perino says White House staffers may use external email systems to insure compliance with the Hatch Act.

The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law whose main provision prohibits employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials of that branch, from engaging in some forms of political activity. The law was named for Senator Carl Hatch of New Mexico. It was most recently amended in 2012.
