Before Leaving Office, Aides To Gov. Romney Purged Hard Drives
Mitt Romney According to a new report from the Boston Globe, before exiting the governor’s office, aides to Mitt Romney reportedly purchased their state-issued hard drives and wiped out all of their e-mails. While it’s not immediately clear that the mass purging violated public records laws, what was the impetus? And what – if anything – should voters should make of it? Does it/should it raise red flags about transparency in the former governor's administration?

Guests:
  Pam Wilmot, executive director of Common Cause Massachusetts, a fair government watchdog group
  Glen Johnson, Boston.com politics editor
  Siddhartha Mahanta, writing fellow at Mother Jones Magazine. In April 2011, he wrote an article for the magazine about how former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee also destroyed records before launching a presidential bid.
