KMJ NOW – by Aaron Abeytia

FRESNO, Calif. (KMJ) — 12 California public officials have acknowledged using personal e-mail accounts, to conduct government business.

That’s according to the AP, who surveyed 4 legislative leaders, and 8 top officials.  

Governor Jerry Brown’s office says he occasionally uses private e-mail to contact staffers.

Schools Chief Tom Torlakson is said to use it for most of his official business.The survey comes as Hillary Clinton is under fire, for using personal e-mail during her time as U.S. Secretary of State.

But California has no blanket policy restricting the use of personal e-mail for government activities. It’s not clear if the private exchanges are stored, or subject to disclosure.
