Yesterday, I commited these allegations to paper and filed a criminal complaint with the Travis County DA. The complaint can be found here and the attached exhibit can be found here.
The allegation is straight forward:
- Electronic state records must be retained in electronic form,
- E-mail records in particular must retain the email addresses, and
- The current, process of printing emails out as hard copy and filing the resulting paper violates these minimum requirements.
When I get a reply from the office of the Travis County DA I will post it here.
