Daniels Was Using Purdue E-Mail Address Months Before Becoming Its President
There was a lot of talk at the time about the propriety of Purdue's Board of Trustees, made up primarily of appointees of former Gov. Mitch Daniels, voting to select him as the university's new president at a time he still had nearly six months left to serve as the state's governor. An interesting fact discerned by the Journal-Gazette's Niki Kelly from those e-mail exchanges that landed former Supt. Tony Bennett in hot water is that Daniels had started using a Purdue e-mail account in October, 2012, at least three months before leaving office.
