Ex-aide slams Palin in leaked manuscript .
'A leaked, unfinished manuscript by a former aide to Sarah Palin claims the former Alaska governor and Republican vice presidential candidate broke state election law during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign.

The Anchorage Daily News reports that Frank Bailey, a former Alaska Airlines supervisor who joined Palin's 2006 gubernatorial campaign, has been working on a memoir titled "In Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years" with California author Ken Morris and Jeanne Devon, publisher of the anti-Palin Web site Mudflats.

Bailey, who has never been interviewed publicly following his work with Palin, reportedly provides details of some of the 60,000 e-mails he sent to or received from Palin, including an e-mail in which then-governor Palin wrote "I hate this damn job.".

3. Mudflats is not an "anti-Palin" blog
Edited on Sun Feb-20-11 03:55 PM by EstimatedProphet
It's a political blog. Maybe this is nitpicking, but "anti-Palin" looks to me like it is inserted to imply that the blog is just an axe-grinding site, when it isn't. It deserves more respect than that.

4. You are correct.

Mudflats spends far less time on Sarah than many of the other Alaska blogs.

For more on this leak, see my posts here:

At this time, I'm more curious about who leaked the manuscript and why than I am about what is actually in it. Much of what Bailey reports has been common knowledge here for a while, although maybe not known by Lower 48ers. I hope that this leak does not negatively impact the search for a publisher.

5. Cease and desist letter from attorney for authors of leaked manuscript...
Reported by Gryphen at The Immoral Minority. For the sake of Frank Bailey, Jeanne Devon (AKMuckraker) and Ken Morris, I am very happy to see this. If you see unauthorized quoting of this manuscript anywhere, could you let this lawyer know? The authors have been quite upset by the leak.

Dear Sir:

I write on behalf of Ken Morris, Frank Bailey and Jeanne Devon (collectively, the Copyright Owners). The Copyright Owners are co-owners of the copyright in the unpublished manuscript entitled Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin: A Memoir of our Tumultuous Years (the Work).

Between February 16, 2011 and February 19, 2011 you were the recipient of an unlawfully distributed version of the Work. The Copyright Owners kindly request that you do not violate US copyright law by distributing, copying, reproducing or displaying any portion of the Work. The Copyright Owners are currently assessing their legal position with regards to those parties that violated the copyright in the Work. In an effort to assist the Copyright Owners, we kindly request that you provide exact details as to how you obtained unlawfully distributed copies of the Work and which parties (including names and contact information) sent you the Work.

<snip>


This has been sent to ALL of us who, without authorization from the owners of the copyright, received this manuscript in our e-mail boxes on Friday.

I have already told you that I planned to comply with the wishes of the authors to NOT disseminate important facts from this manuscript, and except for letting you know that there is nothing relevant about babygate I have kept that word. (By the way I am not considered out of compliance with this Cease and Desist order.)

However as you know there are a number of news sites and blogs that have been putting out large portions of the manuscript without authorization, who WILL be facing some serious repercussions if they continue.

<snip>
