Pence provided 13 boxes containing paper copies of the emails in March.

Vice President Mike Pence has turned over emails from a private AOL.com account he used to conduct official business while he was Indiana’s governor.

A spokeswoman for current Gov. Eric Holcomb says Pence’s attorneys last month handed over an electronic database containing the emails, which are public records.

The Republican governor’s office has been grappling with a backlog of public records requests. Some are more than a year old and most are seeking emails from Pence’s private accounts.

Pence provided 13 boxes containing paper copies of the emails in March. But he was slow to provide an easily searchable electronic database of the emails, which his successor requested months ago.

Holcomb spokeswoman Jane Jankowsky said Friday that the records are being reviewed. His office hopes to begin releasing them soon.

    There has been an awful lot of time passed since Pence first was asked, and refused, to turn over the emails. Plenty of time to, say, purge the files of anything he and his cohorts might want to be kept secret.
    How can we believe, after all this time, that there hasn’t been anything to hide?
