Washington (AP) - A mass e-mail from a top adviser to President Barack Obama has the leading Republican on a House oversight panel looking for answers.
 
California Rep. Darrell Issa is asking the White House lawyer for details about a health care overhaul e-mail signed by Obama adviser David Axelrod.
 
Administration officials say the e-mail was sent only to people who signed up for a White House e-mail list that is typically used to provide updates on the president's speeches.
 
Issa on Monday cited reports that some people received the e-mail even though they never signed up. Critics say that suggests the White House combined its taxpayer-funded list with member rolls from other political groups.
 
The White House says it did nothing wrong.
