Jeb Bush Posts Emails, Cites “Spirit of Transparency”

Let's hope he means that more than "the most transparent administration in history."

By Published on February 10, 2015

Jeb Bush, citing “the spirit of transparency,” has posted a trove of emails from his tenure as Florida’s governor on a new web site, JebBushEmails.com.

“I am posting the emails of my governorship here. Some are funny; some are serious; some I wrote in frustration. But they’re all here so you can read them and make up your own mind,” he writes on the site, which also includes the first chapter of a new e-book about his eight years leading the Sunshine State.

Bush says he spent 30 hours a week answering emails from constituents, especially after he made his personal email public.

The set of emails was previously obtained by news organizations late last year after public records requests, but Bush’s move is meant to illustrate a tradition of communicating with constituents as well as a commitment to transparency – an issue that has tripped up past presidential candidates.
