A second Environmental Protection Agency official stands accused of using a personal email address to shield communications with environmental activists from public disclosure.

Court documents show [2] that EPA Region 8 Administrator James Martin corresponded with the Environmental Defense Fund — where he previously worked [3] as an attorney — through his private email account.

EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson recently came under fire for her use of email aliases, before she announced her resignation.

The emails were communications between Martin’s private Apple “me.com” account and Vickie Patton, general counsel at the Environmental Defense Fund.
