Description

It's a practice that gained national notoriety with reports that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declined to use her government-issued email for public business -- favoring a personal account while serving as Secretary of State. The WDSU I-Team discovered a similar practice involving the leader of the most populous city in Louisiana. We delved into how many emails the mayor of New Orleans sends, and from what accounts. Investigative reporter Travers Mackel tracked down the mayor and asked him why he used his private email instead of his city-issued one. In this two-part series, we take a closer look at the practice. Days after the reports aired, the mayor renounced the use of his private email account for public business. https://youtu.be/B9b1Kc33Sa4
