House committee accuses Obama administration of ‘putting secrecy over transparency’

The House Committee on Energy and Commerce accused President Obama’s administration of “putting secrecy over transparency in an effort to avoid accountability” in a report released Tuesday by its Republican majority.

Administration officials have met with lobbyists outside the White House to avoid recording the lobbyists’ names on White House visitor logs and used personal e-mail accounts to conduct government business, according to the report -- a possible violation of the Presidential Records Act, if the e-mails were not preserved.
