EPA denies claim that former director Jackson used NJ email account

The New Jersey account turned up amid thousands of pages of emails released by the administration late last week. Chris Horner, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, said the use of alias and non-federal government accounts suggests an attempt to skirt federal records laws and requests. 

Jackson, who left at the beginning of President Obama's second term, has already been under scrutiny for using the alias "Richard Windsor" in emails. The documents released last week showed that, in at least one case, Jackson also used her New Jersey government email account to forward her Richard Windsor account a New York Times article in July 2009.
