Secret Service investigating potential Romney email hacking

ADVERTISEMENT
The hacker claims to have been directed to Romney’s personal account after the Wall Street Journal published emails obtained from Romney’s gubernatorial email account.

When Romney left office, his administration deleted emails from the computer server, and purchased and removed state hardware. On Tuesday, the Wall Street Journal published correspondences that had not been destroyed, in which Romney defended the individual mandate for his Massachusetts healthcare law.

Neither the Romney campaign nor the Secret Service would confirm the hacker’s claim.
