Ill. Gov. Rauner: Life is ‘Way Better’ Without Email

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – No email for Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner. KMOX’s Michael Calhoun tells us that Rauner’s given up the habit and turned in his email address.

Rauner chuckled when asked about his email habits, before telling KMOX that he doesn’t have any – personal or business – and it’s improved the quality of his life.

“My life is very different as governor than it was as a private business person,” Rauner says. “My life is actually way better because I don’t use email.”

Any email? Even a personal address?

“I have not sent an email as governor of Illinois,” he says.

Rauner says he prefers a phone call, handshake, or even penning a handwritten letter.

In a reference to Hillary Clinton, Rauner says it’s too easy to get in trouble when you use email.

“I don’t want a confidential email getting sent to the wrong person,” he says. “I don’t want somebody’s email getting hacked.”
