Everytime a politician's private electronic communications have

Been made public, they've cried about it. Yet another thing that's only legal when the government does it.

Excellent point.

... after all, aren't they supposed to be public servants?

And we just keep repeating,

And we just keep repeating, "what do you have to hide"? And we all know that congressmen have a shitload of things they need to hide!
