Romney's Missing Hard Drives & Destruction of Correspondence While Exiting Governor's Office

In 2006, staff members working under then Massachusett's Governor Mitt Romney purchased hard drives removed from computers used during Romney's administration.  Correspondence written during Romney's tenure were destroyed as well.


An excerpt from today's article expressing the crux of this issue:


"In a roundabout way, Romney and his aides may have done a favor for open government. I would imagine that, for the citizens of Massachusetts, buying your hard drive so things disappear doesn't pass the smell test. Everybody's going to know it was done for the purpose of hiding information from the public. Even if that's perfectly legal, people would say, ‘How can they get away with that?’ Maybe there will be a move to change the law."


In the meantime, I will be wondering what will come of this (now publicly known) aggregious violation of public trust.
