Iowa’s Governor Has Email Issues

By Deane Barker on August 8, 2003

Report: Iowa Governor Says He’s Not Good With E-Mail: A hint: if you’re not good with a computer, and you’re governor of a state, don’t tell reporters about it:

“[Governor] Vilsack told newspaper reporters he accidentally deleted some important e-mails because he, ‘doesn’t know much about technology’ and is ‘technologically deficient.’ The reporters wanted to see the e-mails as part of a story involving the salary for the new economic development director for the state.”

This should go over well with Iowa’s economic development group that’s trying to lure high-tech business to the state. Someone call Chris Pirillo.
