Democrats are seizing on a new report that Vice President Mike Pence used an AOL account to conduct state business while he was governor of Indiana . . .
The hashtag #PenceEmails is trending on social media this morning, with critics calling out Pence’s own “Email-Gate.”
Republicans- LOCK HER UP! Her private emails put everyone in jeopardy!
Republicans- Mike Pence is cool. Everyone uses AOL. Not his fault.
