Indiana is paying a firm $100K to handle 'unusually high' Pence email requests by Circa News

It literally pays to be Vice President of the United States. Now, who's doing the paying is a different story.

Indiana is reportedly paying $100,000 to a law firm to help deal with an "unusually high" number of public records requests, seeking emails from Vice President Mike Pence’s time as governor.

More than 50 records requests are pending before Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb’s administration.

Many are for emails routed through a private AOL.com email address Pence used to conduct state business.

The requests are from private citizens, law firms, political parties and news organizations, including The Associated Press.

Pence hired a firm to review his emails. Thirteen boxes have been turned over so far.

The vice president’s spokesman, Marc Lotter, says Pence’s emails are being preserved "in full compliance with the law."
