Romney wiped out his electronic trail

Hmm. How does that old saw go again? If they have nothing to hide...
Just before Mitt Romney left the Massachusetts governor’s office and first ran for president, 11 of his top aides purchased their state-issued computer hard drives, and the Romney administration’s e-mails were all wiped from a server, according to interviews and records obtained by the Globe. [...]

All told, 11 Romney administration officials bought 17 hard drives from the governor’s office, paying $65 for each one, according to copies of canceled checks that they wrote and members of the current administration. Many of the aides wrote “equipment’’ or “hard drives’’ in the memo space on their checks.
Current governor Deval Patrick's office advises, “The governor’s office has found no e-mails from 2002-2006 in our possession.’’ Apparently this isn't illegal but you might think someone planning to run for President wouldn't be erasing the public record if they were proud of it.

Feeling a little deja vu here, recalling the missing Bush era emails.
