Probably because they don't need them.
I can see the abuse government employees would commit if they all had official .gov emails.
Ever see a bank fraud spam email from firstname.lastname@example.org. That would be funny.
'Attention this is agent corrupt at the FBI. We have noticed strange terrorist related transactions from your personal bank account. We beleive
these transactions are committed used stolen accoutn information. We have no reason to beleive it was you who was responsible for these transactions.
In order to verify your indentiy and to further investigate these charges, please send me your social security, mothers maiden name, all bank
account numbers in your possesion, credit card numbers, and a scanned copy of your photo ID. You may respond to email@example.com, Thank
I can see it. I dont beleive for a second the FBI is having trouble with funding email accounts for their employees if they wanted and needed them.
I have had an email account since I was 7. They cost like 50 cents a year. BS article. But then again they probably need people overseeing them for
classified information being passed around, it might cost alot in security, but still if they wanted and needed them, they would have them.
