Wayne’s Whirled

From The San Diego Union Tribune:

Prior to becoming secretary of state under President Donald Trump, Rex Tillerson used the alias “Wayne Tracker” to exchange emails about climate change while he was CEO of ExxonMobil, a New York prosecutor revealed in a letter filed in court Monday.

The letter by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman alleges that Tillerson used his middle name, Wayne, in an email address bearing the alias “to send and receive materials regarding important matters, including those concerning to the risk-management issues related to climate change.”

Right away, as the story hit the web Tuesday, questions swirled around Tillerson’s alias: Why was Tillerson using an alias to communicate about climate change? Who else used an alias at ExxonMobil? Should Tillerson have disclosed this during his confirmation hearing?


The use of aliases has not always fared well for political figures in the past.


The Washington Post once reported that even Tillerson’s own boss, President Trump, had once used an alias: John Barron.

The company says the “Wayne Tracker” email was set up to “secure and expedite” communication with executives at the company, BuzzFeed News reported. But in his letter, Schneiderman has asked the company to disclose as many as 34 other “management-related” email addresses used by executives.

Who knows what they’ll find. Perhaps another alias?

This was inspired a tweet by my favorite media-type person of all time, Joy Reid.

  1. Good one nonnie. Ironically, the alias is also his porn name…

    • Thanks cynical one without equal. I can’t even imagine either one of them in a porn movie. Maybe in the theater with a popcorn bucket with a hole in the bottom, but not in any kind of starring or even supporting role. 😉

  2. Dang, the revelations just don’t stop. It seems that T. installed crooks and liars and incompetents in his cabinet. Then there is Kushner and Donald Jr.

    • I can’t keep up, PPP. I finish a poster, close Photoshop, and then I turn on the news or read something on Twitter, and fire up Photoshop again. I was away all day, so I don’t know what happened today, but I am sure something outrageous occurred.
