Palin’s e-mails go public

Alaska’s capital, Juneau, was the scene of frenzied activity on Friday as state officials prepared six boxes of printed messages for each news organization that paid for the documents. Reporters fought for elevators in a mad rush out of the building to begin sorting and readying the documents for publication.

The documents were copies of Sarah Palin’s e-mails spanning a timeframe from her start as Alaska governor in December 2006 to September 2008, after the first month of her run as the Republican vice-presidential candidate—some 24,000 pages of them. They were released in response to public-information requests from media organizations.

The e-mails are said to be, by one newspaper, “an extraordinary event in their own right, providing the sort of intimate look into a governor’s day-to-day interactions that is rarely available to the public.” That’s, perhaps, a bit over the top, but it’ll take time for the media organizations to sort through this “treasure trove.” I’m sure they’ll find a few tasty bits.

Here and her are links to news organizations covering this story. Enjoy.

  1. Sarah has the loopy left ina tither and they think that by mis-quoting and taking emails out of context they can somehow put the Genie back in the lamp, they're nuts.

    More and more people are beginning to see that the Emperor has no clothes.

  2. Where is the mad rush for President Obama's records, transcripts and emails from the time he was elected as a "New Party" candidate for the Illinois senate to today?
