American Bridge FOIAs Missouri Attorney General’s Office for Hawley’s Private Emails, Phone Calls

Today American Bridge submitted a public records request to the Missouri Attorney General’s office for email correspondence sent via private email to or from Josh Hawley regarding official office matters.

The request follows Hawley’s claim that he does not use his official state email address, and instead has conducted business over the phone during his many days out of the office campaigning for Senate.

In accordance with Missouri’s Sunshine Law, American Bridge requested incoming and outgoing email and phone correspondences between Josh Hawley, his chiefs of staff, and his official scheduler. Download the request here.

“Hawley’s claim that he doesn’t use email in a 21st century workplace just doesn’t pass the smell test,” said American Bridge spokesperson Amelia Penniman. “If Hawley is conducting official business over a private email address, Missourians deserve to know what he is concealing before they go to the polls on Election Day.”
